National Lottery Launches People’s Projects Programme (UK)
The National Lottery Community Fund, in partnership with ITV, UTV and the Sunday Mail, has launched the People’s Projects, a £4.37 million programme that gives the public the chance to have a say in how National Lottery funding is spent in their community.
The programme will award grants of up to £70,000 to charities, voluntary or community organisations, schools, parish and community councils, and other not-for-profit organisations for projects that bring people together and help communities to prosper and thrive.
95 shortlisted groups will take part in a national campaign, with the winners being decided by public vote. Priority will be given to smaller organisations with annual turnovers of under £500,000.
Grants of up to £70,000 will be awarded to 57 winners across the UK. Up to 38 runner-up organisations will be awarded up to £10,000.
The fund closes to applications at 12pm on the 7th of October 2022, or sooner depending on the volume of applications.
