How to Claim Your Grant

All grants have a lifespan of 24 months from approval date and must be claimed within this timeframe. Grants will automatically lapse after 24 months; it is therefore important that you submit your grant request in good time.  Please note that grants can not be requested until the work outlined within the grant application form is under way.

When you are in a position to request the grant payment, please provide the following to us via email:

a) Completed, signed and dated Grant Request Form;
b) Paid invoice(s) relating to the approved project grant;
c) Recent bank statement showing the account, sort code and name of the church or organisation. Please note, we are unable to accept transaction reports or screen shots only.

In addition you may choose to support the grant request by project reports and/or photographs.

All approved grant payments will be paid direct into the church bank account during the first week of each calendar month.
