The Community Grants Programme helps to take forward the Council's aims in people, place and prosperity - promoting wellbeing and supporting the efforts of the many volunteers in East Herts.
The purpose of this discretionary funding is so that the Council can facilitate improved health, sports and cultural opportunities and bring about positive change at the local level. Through its 15/16 Community Grants Programme, the Council made 150 awards to voluntary/community organisations, parish councils and young people for excellence in arts and sports.
Areas of funding for 2016/17 include:
The Council receives many high quality and worthwhile applications so please be aware that, regretfully, the Council is not able to grant fund all applications. If we are unable to help, there are many other sources of funding available, please see our list of External Funding .
Important: All applicants must obtain endorsement for their project from their local East Herts Councillor. To find out which Councillor represents your area, please go to Find your Councillor and click on the "Write to Them" link. Simply enter the postcode where your project will mainly take place and this will identify the Councillor who represents that area.
