Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust - Major Capital Grants Programme


Large grants towards new builds and significant refurbishment, including extensions, of rental accommodation offering high quality support for Veterans with a housing need.

They want to support projects that need help to refurbish or extend existing accommodation or build new accommodation to house Veterans. You can apply for this programme if your project will:

  • Enable major refurbishment of existing social rented or affordable rented homes for Veterans
  • Enable extensions of existing buildings to increase the availability of Veteran housing
  • Increase the number of new build, homes/housing units available to Veterans at affordable or social rents
  • Ensure properties meet decent homes and energy efficiency standards

A strong application will show how the project would meet the wider aims of the Veteran Capital Housing Fund. You will also need to show how your project will support Veterans at risk and how it will support longer-term change that will last beyond the life of your grant.
