The next round for applications for grants from the Community Covenant Scheme is now open.

The aim of the Community Covenant Grant Scheme is to financially support projects, at a local level, which strengthen the ties or the mutual understanding between members of the armed forces community and the wider community in which they live.

Projects need to deliver tangible results and meet the aims of the Community Covenant scheme.

Wiltshire Community Covenant Partnership’s deadline date for the next round of applications is Friday, April 18 and all application forms need to be with Sue Jeffreys, Corporate Office, Wiltshire Council by this date.

If endorsed, applications will be submitted to the Regional MoD Community Covenant Grant panel meeting which takes place in June. Bids which are not endorsed locally are unlikely to be approved by the MoD Community Covenant Grant panel.

Completed application forms should be emailed to or
