Community Radio Fund – Round 2 Deadline Approaching

Round two is currently accepting applications from radio stations across the UK that are not-for-profit, run by local people for local people about local issues.

The funding is intended for community radio licensees broadcasting under a community radio licence in the UK to cover costs including:

  • Fundraising to support the station.
  • Management.
  • Administration.
  • Financial management and reporting.
  • Community outreach.
  • Volunteer organisation and support.

The funding is intended to help further a station’s financial stability and future sustainability. Therefore, proposals to promote long-term financial security and posts which could become self-sustaining are viewed more favourably than applications for other support roles.

There is no set level of funding. In the first funding round for 2019, grants ranged from £6,830 up to £34,320 for individual positions, with an average of £16,567.

This is a very competitive grants programme with many more requests for funding than can be awarded.

The deadline for Round 2 applications is 5 November 2019.
