COVID-19 – Please note that in light of the Government’s advice on social distancing and limiting the spread of the coronavirus, the process for applying for a grant has changed. Please follow the process described below:
Application forms and guidance notes are now available to download from this page.
In the interests of transparency and to help applicants fully understand the grant aid process, ‘Process Notes’ are now also available which set out the Town Council’s policy on Grant Aid, the process itself, timescales and the criteria against which applications are assessed and processed.
It is strongly recommended that you read through this document carefully before submitting your application.
The Grant Aid years run from 1 April through to 31 January. Applications can be made at any time between these dates and any grant awarded will usually be paid within three months
As the Town Council’s year-end falls on 31 March, the office is under considerable pressure during April, May and June. Please note that although applications will normally be processed within three months, the processing of applications received between April and June may be delayed due to preparation required for the Town Council’s Annual Return.
However, if you consider your grant application to be urgent, please submit a letter along with your application explaining why.
