Healthy Heart Grants deadline 31st August 2013

Medical charity Heart Research UK (HRUK) provides the Healthy Heart Grants scheme to enable community organisations to carry out new, original and innovative projects that actively promote heart health and help to prevent or reduce the risks of heart disease in specific groups or communities.

Applications are accepted twice a year (January through February and July through August) for projects that run for about a year and which focus on and actively promote heart health. Funding will not be awarded to general healthy lifestyle projects.

Community and voluntary organisations, registered charities, and other not-for-profit organisations based and working in the UK may apply for grants of up to £10,000.

The next deadline for applications is 31 August 2013.

A funding pot of £50,000 is available in each grant round with a maximum of £10,000 available per application. Competition is very high, and the success rate is currently around 1 in 40.
