Community grants

East Hampshire District Council is committed to supporting community groups within the district by giving out grants.

The grants currently available are:

Supporting Communities fund

EHDC has committed £1,000,000 over the next three years for revenue and project grants.

These grants will help community groups, either by providing a three year funding agreement (revenue grants), or by providing up to £25,000 for a one-off project (project grants).

For further information on these grants, please see the application form and guidance notes:

Deadline for applications is Friday 31 May 2019.

Councillor community grants

All councillors have an annual budget of £4,500 that they can spend on projects or initiatives within their local area.

The Councillor Community Grants Scheme gives local councillors discretion to award grants of between £100 and £1,000 to support local projects or initiatives within their wards.

Below is a list of what the money was spent on last year:

Community groups and voluntary organisations supporting local communities are invited to apply directly to the ward councillor for the area where their project is based.

The councillor will make an initial assessment of the merits of the scheme and, subject to the application meeting certain criteria, will then decide whether to approve funding.
