This is has now re-opened with a deadline for applications of 24th May. Once again  grants will range from £50k-£300k  and can cover both revenue and  capital expenditure, although they usually will only fund up to 75%  of the cost of the project. Plus,  remember that you must meet their definition of a community business. There are a number of projects involving refurbishment of vacant properties that they’ve funded to date and so it could be  worth exploring.  https://www.powertochange.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Community-Business-Fund-applicant-guidance-Round-5.pdf
