Covenant Fund grant

The Government's national Covenant Fund grant has £10 million each year to support the Armed Forces Covenant by funding projects that address specific priorities.

The funding priorities for April 2018 to March 2019 include:

  • Armed Forces Covenant: local grants and digital development.
  • Armistice and Armed Forces Communities: supporting local communities to consider the Armed Forces Covenant and its relevance today in the context of the World War 1 commemorations.


Further details including information on each priority and guidance documents can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/covenant-fund.

Please note that it is generally recommended that potential grant applicants get in touch with their Local Covenant Partnership for input into the plans before submission. Please send any communications in relation to applications to alice.pippard@eastsussex.gov.uk.
