Special Project Grant
The Special Projects Grant is a fund which is administered by CAG Project staff and the CAG Network Forum. It is available to all CAGs within the network in order to deliver “special” projects, events or activities which they may not be able to self-fund otherwise.
We also maintain a funding database with opportunities for groups, which we are constantly updating. If you know a fund not listed here please email us.Browse funding here
