Community grant round 2 available! Sovereign Housing Association has up to £90,000 of Community Funding for 2021/2022 (up to £45,000 over two grant rounds). The first round is now awarded but round 2 is now OPEN! Community groups and charities can apply through The Good Exchange (not directly to Sovereign) for funding.
Sovereign welcome applications from a variety of community organisations, groups and charities. However, the project must meet certain criteria to be matched with them. WHAT THEY WILL FUND (projects that) • benefit Sovereign communities • are based in the South and Southwest of England and operate within a 3-mile radius of Sovereign housing areas properties • match themes of round • are live on the platform by round deadline date • are Capital and Revenue projects as well as projects with elements or a combination of both • are Sovereign Community and resident led (these will be favoured)
A huge congratulations to the groups that have each received donations between £1,000 and £3,500 from Sovereign. Almost £10,000 was donated across all of the groups, and it was great to see that some of the groups receiving the donations are groups the BVA Team work closely with. Now it’s time for round 2…
Round 2: Community cohesion and growth! Sovereign will be looking for projects that are all about growing and reconnecting after Covid – reigniting community organisations, inviting people to join in, share their skills, learn new ones and bringing the community together
Deadline: October 31, 2021 – your project must be live on The Good Exchange by this date
Sovereign will typically award grants between a few hundred pounds and £5000 but may consider up to £10,000 for the right project.
