Community Buildings Improvement Programme

Trust logoGreenham Common Trust is considering a second grant round of its successful Community Buildings Improvement Programme (CBIP). Over £2m has already been paid or committed to 92 local organisations to either replace or improve community facilities. The Trust’s Board is considering further capital funding to boost local infrastructure projects and is inviting expressions of interest before it makes a final decision about whether to go ahead with CBIP 2.

The project overview should include:

  • Name and contact details of your organisation.
  • Where is the building based or where will it be based?
  • Description of your project and estimated total cost.
  • Expected timescale for the project.
  • Breakdown of funding you have either secured or has been committed so far.
  • Funding total you are seeking to complete your project.
  • Any other critical information which is relevant to the project going ahead or not.

*We will also consider applications already made via findmeagrant (now The Good Exchange)

What would be the eligibility criteria if the Trust decides to make funding available?

  • New building or an improvement to an existing building.
  • Must provide substantial benefits to the local community.
  • Potential funding up to a maximum of 50% of the total project costs (preferably up to 25%).
  • Total funds available are unlikely to exceed £1m.
  • A full business case is required.
  • Match funding is a requirement.

If you are fundraising for a new village hall, scout hut or community centre or you want to redevelop the local football clubhouse or changing rooms please send us an overview of your project to Julian May in a word document via email or post them to Greenham Common Trust, Liberty House, The Enterprise Centre, Greenham Business Park, Newbury, Berkshire RG19 6HW. Alternatively call 01635 817407 for more information. Submissions should be received by 10th May 2014 and the Trust’s Board will meet in early June to consider whether to agree the second round of CBIP funding. An announcement will be made shortly afterwards.
