Church Urban Fund has an annual grant-making budget of around £1 million. Grants are awarded to community groups offering all kinds of support to people living in England's poorest communities.
CUF particularly supports churches in deprived areas reaching out to serve their local community, but we also welcome applications from other faith groups.
All applications need to be made via our network of local Diocesan Link Officers (find the Diocesan Link Officer details). If you're unsure which Anglican diocese you're in, you can find out using a simple search on the Church of England's 'A Church Near You' website: enter your postcode to find your nearest church; clicking the church's name will tell you which diocese it is in
Please note that our Main Grants/Continuation Grants programme is suspended until further notice and that our Mustard Seed Grant Criteria have been updated.
