Community radio fund


The second round of the Community Radio Fund 2018-19 opens for applications from eligible stations on 9 October 2018 and will close at 5pm on 6 November 2018. The awarding Panel will meet in January 2019 to consider the applications.

Grants can only be made to community radio licensees in the UK, who are broadcasting under a community radio licence. Applications from eligible licence-holders may be submitted in Welsh. Any application submitted in Welsh will be treated no less favourably than an application submitted in English.
