The Prince's Countryside Fund was established to help rural areas in the United Kingdom to become more sustainable. The focus areas for the Fund are:
- Projects to improve the sustainability of British farming in areas of deprivation.
- Projects to improve the sustainability of rural communities.
- Projects to reconnect people with the countryside.
The maximum level of funding for individual projects will be £50,000. The Fund can pay for a portion or the entirety of the costs of a project and applications for capital, project and resource funding will be considered.
Applications will be accepted from organisations that can demonstrate the support of the community which will benefit from the project and show evidence of consulting the community.
The next deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 17 May 2013.
