BIG to provide £50m extra funding - 27 October 2011

£17m of the funding will provide support to an additional 650 charitable and community projects, while the remaining £33m will help existing projects within BIG’s portfolio.

The funding available to new projects will be distributed through BIG’s current Reaching Communities programme (the annual budget will increase by £12m) and the Awards for All programme (which will receive an annual boost of £5m).

The money will also provide more than 900 grants of up to £10,000 to existing grant holders before the end of the current financial year. BIG will be contacting existing grant-holders in the final 18 months of their projects explaining the eligibility criteria to receive new grants and projects evidenced to be having a particularly significant impact will also receive an additional year’s funding.
