The grants programme awards up to £500,000 across 11 UK regions annually. Grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 are available.
The funding is for local housing projects that will strengthen local communities to support the most vulnerable by:

- Helping people in to a home
- Supporting people to thrive within the home environment
Grant awards will be determined by Nationwide members who will vote on the shortlisted projects.
The deadline for this round is 5 July 2019. Applications will only be accepted from West of England, North West, North Midlands, the North East of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Applicants should check the list of local authorities (https://www.ukcommunityfoundations.org/our-programmes/nationwide) on the UK Community Foundations website to see if funding is available in their area.
Groups that would like to discuss their application should contact their local community foundation.
