Cost of living support
Colchester Borough Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
The Armed Forces Covenant Fund commits £10 million each year to support the Armed Forces Covenant by making grants for projects that contribute towards integration, greater wellbeing, and social support for serving Armed Forces personnel, their families, veterans and the communities where they live.
The priority areas for grant applications are varied but are for supporting the delivery of the Covenant and funding projects which strengthen the relationships between the Armed Forces community and the civilian community.
The Covenant Fund grants team have collated case studies on small and large grants that have been awarded by the team. These examples provide an insight into how the Covenant Fund works and how grants can be used for a variety of projects. Click on the link to find out more.
Applicants must apply using the MOD grant application form:
Before applying, we strongly recommend you contact the Local Covenant Partnership.

They can offer support and advice around Covenant grants and endorsing your application.
