Community Funding Grants

We award Community Funding Grants to support community activities. These awards can be made to Community and Voluntary Organisations, Town / Parish Councils, Registered Charities and to other bodies or individuals.

The Community Funding Policy sets out the principles and criteria that govern how we award Community Funding.

Activities funded must be fully consistent with our strategic aims, objectives and priorities as outlined in our Corporate Plan, the Sport and Leisure Strategy, the Building Stronger Communities Strategy and the NORTOFT Consultants Report.

Community Funding Grants are made at our discretion and will be dependent on the availability of funding.

If you have read our Community Funding Policy and wish to apply for a grant, please complete an Expression Of Interest Form and email to the address shown in that document. We will need to contact you to discuss your grant application and to work with you to develop your grant proposal before an application form is completed.

The closing date for Community Funding Grant Applications (Round 1), is 9:00am on Friday 31 July 2020. Community Funding Grant Applications received after that date and time will be deferred to Round 2. The Community Funding Panel will be held on Monday 24 August 2020.
