The Village Halls Small Grants Fund provides grants of between £2,000 and £5,000 to help make improvements to rural community buildings in England. The funding is provided by Defra and administered by the charity Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE).

Grants are intended to support smaller capital projects in village halls such as boiler replacements, insulation, toilet upgrades and new kitchens.

Grants of between £2,000 and £5,000 are available to cover 20% of the eligible capital project costs including the VAT. There is no upper limit for the total capital costs. Smaller projects will be prioritised. All project work must be complete before the end of March 2025.

The funding is for village halls and other community buildings in rural areas (population under 10,000) that are used for a wide variety of community activities. Please refer to the guidelines for detailed eligibility criteria.
