Community Project Grant

Funding to provide financial support to community groups to help purchase equipment or fund building related costs.  These could include funds for sports equipment, repairs to a village hall or tree planting.

The maximum grant you can normally apply for is £5,000 or up to 50% of the project's cost, whichever is the lower, however in some  circumstances we could consider a grant of up to £10,000 for exceptional projects. You will need to find other sources of funding for the remaining costs but we can give you advice on where you can apply to or who to contact.

To make an application for a Community Project Grant, please read the guidance notes and Community Project Grant application form under the downloads section of this page.
