Funding now available for community radio

The Community Radio Fund 2015-16 second round is now open for grant applications.

The deadline to apply is 5pm on Wednesday 11 November, with decisions expected to be made by the Community Radio Fund Panel on 19 January 2016.

For this second round, a community radio station must be on-air by the time the Panel meets for its grant application to be considered.

The Fund was established to give grants to help fund the core costs of running community radio stations. While some of the activities undertaken by a station, such as training, may attract funding more easily than other types of activity, it is recognised that the essential core work involved in running a station is the most difficult for which to find funding.

There is no limit to how much can be applied for, however the Panel asks applicants to take note of previous grant awards for an indication of realistic award figures. Grants will be made as a single lump sum, and are to cover a one-year period only.

This is what the Community Radio Fund has been set up to provide help for. These core functions include:

• fundraising to support the station (e.g. grants, commercial funding)
• management
• administration
• financial management & reporting
• community outreach
• volunteer organisation and support

An application form and more details are available here.
