A £3 million fund to improve village halls and better connect rural communities across the country has been launched today (5 April 2019) by the government.
With more than 10,000 village halls across the country, these spaces provide vital hubs for communities to connect, collaborate and celebrate.
Village hall committees are now able to apply for grants of up to £75,000 towards refurbishment and alteration of their buildings, from improvement works on existing facilities through to new meeting rooms.

The grant funding will be managed by ACRE on behalf of Defra with support from the ACRE Network. To apply please click here.
