The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) Charitable Foundation aims to improve private rented housing standards. Through its grants programme, the Foundation is looking to support bids which promote knowledge of landlord’s obligations or tenant’s rights and responsibilities. Trustees are also looking at the feasibility of establishing a dedicated research centre for the private rented sector in England and Wales. Each year a total of £105,000 is made available over three bidding rounds. The maximum grant payable in respect of any one bid is £20,000.
The next deadline for applications to the TDS is 14th June 2017.
