Grants and Local Funding

Community Buildings Capital Grant Fund

The Warwickshire County Council Localities and Partnerships Team is making available this one-off grant fund of £60,000 to promote the delivery of localised services from community buildings. The Fund will help local organisations to improve community buildings so that the services delivered from them reach more people and help reduce the pressure on Council services. Applications of between £6,000 and £12,000 are invited from Third Sector Organisations and Town & Parish Councils. Please download and complete the application form below. We advise you to read the guidance notes carefully before you complete the application form.

The closing date for applications is midday on Friday 16 December 2016.

Please note that, due to Christmas staff leave arrangements, the panel will not convene to consider the applications until January. Award decisions will be announced by the end of January 2017.

Please contact the Localities & Communities Officer for your district or borough area for further information and advice using the details provided in the guidance notes.
