Armed Forces Community Grant Scheme

The Community Covenant Grant Scheme has been set up to provide support for local projects which strengthen the ties and mutual understanding between members of the Armed Forces Community and the wider community.

The scheme is being administered by the Ministry of Defence on behalf of the Government and 30 million has been set aside over four financial years and bids are only accepted from areas that have signed unto the Community Covenant.

Individual projects in Woking Borough can apply for grants from 100 - 250,000. Applications can be submitted to Woking Borough Council at any time with bids considered via the Surrey Civilian Military Partnership Board on a quarterly basis.

All applications must:

  • Must meet the aims and objectives of the community covenant;

  • Be value for money; and

  • Be consistent with the aims and objectives of the Woking Armed Forces Community Covenant.
