Department of Agriculture, Environment & Rural Affairs - Micro Grant Programme

Micro Capital grants between £200 and £1,500 are available to rural community-led, voluntary organisations for projects tackling issues of local poverty and / or social isolation. Projects must focus on one of the following three themes:

  • Modernisation  (of building(s) / assets)
  • Information Communication Technology (ICT)
  • Health and Wellbeing

The Rural Micro Capital Grant Scheme can offer grant aid from 50% up to 85% of the total cost of your project, between £200 and£1,500, the maximum available grant. NB:The total project cost must not exceed £3,000. Match funding for your 15% must be in the form of a ‘cash’ contribution.  Labour or ‘in-kind’contributions will not be accepted.  

In order to ensure that as many groups as possible get the opportunity to benefit from this Scheme, organisations can only make one application to the Scheme.  In the event of the call for applications being over-subscribed, preference will be given to applicants who did not receive funding through the RMCGS 2016 pilot and RMCGS 2017.
