The National Churches Trust (NCT) has grants available for major urgent structural repairs and smaller grants for urgent maintenance works.

Cornerstone Grants

The Cornerstone Grant Programme offers the NCT's largest grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 towards the cost of major urgent structural repair projects costed at more than £100,000 including VAT (*grants of £40,000 to £50,000 are extremely limited and reserved for cases which demonstrate a very high case for investment).

They will also consider projects that introduce kitchens and accessible toilets to enable increased community use, costed at more than £30,000 including VAT. Grants will never exceed 50% of the project cost.

Application deadline is midnight on Monday 5th July. A decision will be made in November 2021.

Foundation Grants 

The Foundation Grant Programme offers our small grants of between £500 and £5,000 towards urgent maintenance works and small repairs identified as high priority within a recent Quinquennial Inspection or Survey Report. It can also cover the costs of small investigative works and surveys. Project costs should be up to £10,000 excl. VAT and awards will never exceed 50% of the costs.

Decisions are made on a rolling basis.
