Community Radio Fund first round 2024-2025 open for applications

The first round of the Community Radio Fund 2024-2025 is now open for applications from eligible stations.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has made £400,000 available over the 2024-2025 financial year, meaning the panel will allocate approximately half of this to Round One applicants.

The Fund supports the core costs of running Ofcom-licensed community radio stations as set out in the guidance notes published by Ofcom.

Licensees that hold a Community Digital Sound Programme (C-DSP) licence are eligible to apply for the Fund if the station is broadcasting on a digital radio multiplex at the date of their application.

Grants can only be made to Ofcom-licensed community radio stations in the UK, broadcasting on AM, FM, or via a C-DSP licence on a digital radio multiplex.

The closing date is 5pm on Friday 14 June 2024 and decisions are expected in late July 2024.
