Application Process

National Grid’s Community Grant Programme funds projects in communities affected by our operations.

Please read Who Can Apply and What We Fund before applying for a grant. We prefer to receive applications on-line but if you are unable to do this please call our Community Helpline and they will be able to help you.

We will acknowledge your application and you may be contacted by a grants officer to provide additional details.

We accept applications all year round and these are reviewed on a monthly basis. Applications will be reviewed at the beginning of each month for the previous month and you will be notified of the outcome once a decision has been made . If you are successful, we will give you further information and ask you to provide your bank details. Grants are normally paid directly into your organisation’s bank account. If you are unsuccessful we will let you know

After 12 months, or once your project is complete, we will ask you to report back on progress, confirming how the grant has been used and the impact that has been achieved
