Over the past eight years The People's Millions have awarded more than £27.8m to 523 community projects across the UK.

This year we will break the £30 million mark as we have 76 awards to give away totalling up to £3.8m. Each grant is for up to £50,000. Could the next winning project be yours?

The People's Millions is a grants programme run by the Big Lottery Fund in partnership with ITV. The aim of The People's Millions programme is to fund projects that improve the lives of people in their community.

You can apply if you are:

  • a voluntary or community organisation
  • a school
  • a health body
  • or a branch of organisation or partnership

Previous winners include the Alfrey Activity Centre Broadwater in Warwickshire in 2010. They used The People's Millions money to redevelop their Parish Rooms. They replaced the asbestos roof, fitted central heating and now community groups use the rooms for climbing, abseiling and even adult training sessions.

The people of North Kilworth in Leicestershire won their share of The People's Millions in 2011. They used the money to install solar panels on three community buildings and planted 500 trees in the local nature reserve.

You have from now until noon on Monday 13th May to apply. Shortlisted projects will go head-to-head for voting on ITV Regional News at 6pm during the last week of November. Media training will be offered. Terms and conditions apply.
