Grants are awarded to organisations in the United Kingdom for projects that tackle financial and consumer illiteracy.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available for self help groups and other innovative projects that will help educate people about money/debt/consumer issues. Projects must assist people to improve their quality of life through knowledge and understanding of how to manage and take control of their own financial situation. Projects must also provide outcomes that will benefit their wider communities.
Not-for-profit constituted groups/organisations within the UK that have an annual income of less than £500,000 and whose unrestricted reserves are less than six months of their running costs are eligible to apply.
Applications are now being accepted until 30 September 2014. Only the first 40 complete applications that meet the criteria will be considered by the Panel.
The 'Grant Approval Panel' will meet on 5 November 2014.
