Jubilee People's Millions launched - 26 November 2010

The Big Lottery Fund in partnership with ITV, and with the approval of Buckingham Palace, is marking the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a special roll-out of 60 Lottery grants.

The People's Millions funds new projects that aim to improve local facilities or help people get more out of their area. In place of the usual fund, The Jubilee People’s Millions will run in 2011. The fund is open to projects throughout the UK and gives organisations the chance to win up to £60,000 to improve their area ahead of, and during, the Jubilee year (2012).

Successful organisations that come up with new and original ideas could be on ITV next June, competing for viewers’ votes. Every night for a week in June, when ITV regional news will feature two project ideas.

The Total Fund Value for The Jubilee People's Millions is £3.6 million. This will fund 60 new projects, each being awarded up to £60,000.
