A brand-new UK-wide digital service for organisations applying for government grants has been launched which could save up to £270 million for the government through efficiencies and fraud prevention. The service will make it easier for organisations to find grants, as well as reduce duplication and cut time spent on grant applications by 72%.
The first of its kind ‘Find a Grant’ service offers a free central place on GOV.UK for business, individuals and organisations to find and apply for government grants meaning organisations can find the grants they need quickly and easily. The Cabinet Office said it will soon ensure that all eligible grants are advertised in one place, and will offer the devolved administrations and local authorities the option of using the service.
Each year government awards over £50 billion in general grant funding for a wide range of purposes. So far over 200 schemes worth over £5.3 billion have been advertised on Find a Grant and accessed by 93,000 people.
