Black History Month (BHM) 2022

We will open for applications for grants for the October 2022 BHM programme on Friday 29 April and close on 10am Tuesday 7 June.

We are opening earlier this year in response to feedback from event organisers who requested more time to plan events after receiving their notice of award.

We will offer a number of small grants of up to £500 to enable smaller community celebrations of Black History to take place. For larger, more complicated events, we offer larger grants of up to £2,000.

Applications must be made via our Grants Portal where you can also find the BHM application guidance document.
