Public funding and grants

Fraud relating to public funding and grants happens when individuals, organisations (eg businesses or charities) or organised criminal groups claim public funding or grants that they are not eligible for.

Fraudulent claims could be made to a number of public organisations, eg local authorities, the Lottery Commission, European Union and the Student Loans Company.

If fraud has been committed, report it to Action Fraud.
