New Priorities for MoD Covenant Fund (UK)

The Ministry of Defence has published the initial guidelines outlining the four new priorities, funding levels and applications timeframes for the Covenant Fund 2016-2017.

The four priorities are:

  • The Veterans’ Gateway which opens for applications on 4th May 2016 and will provide a single grant of up to £2 million for a two-year pilot project to set up a 24/7 multi-media point of contact for veterans seeking assistance
  • Families in Stress which opens for applications on 4th May 2016 and will award grants of between £20,001 and £300,000 for projects that support families of serving personnel who are experiencing a significant stressful life event and would benefit from an intervention from a provider who can offer specialised support
  • Improving Local Covenant Delivery which opens for applications on 10th July 2016 and will award grants of between £20,000 and £500,000 for projects that materially improve the experience of local Armed Forces communities (serving personnel, families and veterans) and ensure that they are not disadvantaged
  • Community Integration/Delivery of Local Services round 1 funding opens for applications on 4th May 2016 and will award grants of up to £20,000 for projects that respond to the local needs of the Armed Forces Community, help them integrate into civilian communities, and improve recognition of the Armed Forces Covenant.
