CBA Challenge Funding Available for Community Archaeology – But Hurry!

Each year, the national CBA offers small grants of up to £750 to support new or existing research projects carried out by local societies, groups and communities, through the CBA Challenge Funding scheme.

There is still money available to support groups and societies in this financial year, but applications must be submitted by 31 March 2010.

Groups, societies and individuals working in a voluntary capacity or promoting voluntary involvement are challenged to put forward proposals for projects which will either:
  • say something new about the history of local surroundings, and thus inform their future care and appreciation; or
  • contribute to archaeological innovation (ie new or under-studied aspects of the historic environment, or new methods, techniques and approaches); or
  • help non-government bodies to establish long-term resources or facilities to enable others to carry out their own original research.

Voluntary and Community Groups and Societies are also encouraged to consider joining the CBA as Affiliate Members. Affiliate membership benefits include:
