Councillor community grant scheme

The Councillor Community Grant Scheme is a budget of £4,500 allocated to each District Councillor to support voluntary and not for profit organisations within, or that benefit, their ward.

These organisations must have a charitable or community goal.

Grants of up to £1,000 can be awarded.

The grants are reviewed when they are received, not after the deadline stated below, and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.

Following our Climate Emergency declaration in 2019, £1,000 of allocated budgets must be spent on environmental projects.

If you feel your project is beneficial to the environment, please explain this by completing question 10 of the application form.

The scheme has been set up to contribute towards specific projects and should not be used to cover running costs or salaries.

The deadline for the receipt of applications for 2021-22 will be 28 February 2022.
