As the national membership body for local infrastructure organisations, NAVCA can distribute grants and funding directly to our members, ensuring that local communities get the support that they need.

We distributed £400,000 to NAVCA members for activities supporting Ukrainian people arriving in England. We funded members across all nine regions of England.
