Community Music

Community Music

From hip hop to samba, classical to jazz, the Community Music scheme aims to help not for profit community music groups the length and breadth of the UK to carry out training, attract new audiences, encourage new members and raise their profile in their community.

Community groups looking to apply for a grant as part of the scheme can either apply for up to £5,000 for a development project (Option 1) OR up to £10,000 for a project that includes the commission of a new piece of music (Option 2). However, the average grant awarded will probably be less than the maximum allowed under each option.

Existing applicants can login to their account at any time to see the status of their application.

Applicants will be informed about the outcome of their application by the end of Sep 2012.

This grant is now closed.
