The Welsh Government has set the Community Radio Fund to recognise the contribution community radio stations make to their communities.

What is the fund for?

The fund has been created to help run community radio stations which have been granted a five-year broadcast licence by the Office of Communications in the UK (Ofcom) (external link).

Applying for funding

There has been one funding round in each financial year. Five rounds of funding have been allocated since 2008 and the Welsh Government decided to extend it for a further one year period. Nine community radio stations were awarded grants in 2013-14.

Grants are awarded on a competitive basis. The minimum grant that can be applied for is £5,000 but there is no upper limit.

The closing date for funding for the financial year 2013-14 was 19 February 2013.
