For the United Kingdom we have some 1,850 different grants on the databases provided by UK national organizations or European Union sources.

In addition, there are some 3,000 "grants" provided by local councils, economic development units, LEPs and other specific local bodies.

Nobody, to our knowledge, has ever calculated the total value of grants available . However   the following schemes running from 2014-2020 have budgets as follows: the European Union Research & Development Programme ‘Horizon 2020’ - 82 billion euros; the Connecting Europe Facility-19 billion euros ; Erasmus+ - 13 billion euros; LIFE 3 billion euros plus many more. 

 

No, under no circumstances. A grant, in the strict sense, will be an outright gift of cash, but it is given on condition that agreed criteria, particularly purposes and objectives, are met.

"Grants" may also be taken to mean: -

    • Soft loans which will have, typically, an interest rate rebate and/or a capital repayment holiday and/or a reduction in collateral requirements.
    • Subsidized services or the provision of free information and advice.
    • Tax credits e.g. for rate relief or R&D are also a form of grant.
