POLICY FOR THE AWARD OF GRANTS

There are two types of Grant:

  1. Grants for ‘one off’ activities
  2. Grants to clubs or organisations to enable them to introduce improvements or to support their on-going activities.

 

GRANTS FOR ‘ONE OFF’ ACTIVITIES – CRITERIA  

  1. The activity must be of benefit to the community and it should have the support of the Parish Council.
  2. If successful, the applicant will agree to produce a short report for the Parish Council on completion of the project and must recognise the Parish Council in any publicity.

 

GRANTS FOR CLUBS OR ORGANISATIONS – CRITERIA

  1. The activity must be of benefit to a significant part of the community.
  2. The applicant must demonstrate that the improvement cannot be funded from within its own resources.
  3. The applicant will produce a copy of the latest accounts.
  4. If successful, the applicant will agree to produce a short report for the Parish Council on completion of the project and must recognise the Parish Council in any publicity.

 

If the Parish Council agrees to provide a Grant then it will be either a single sum or sufficient to support the improvement for a maximum of 12 months. The club or organisation may then submit a further proposal.

If the Parish Council agrees to support the project, then the maximum contribution will be £500.

 

PROCESS

The application will be submitted to the Finance & General Purposes Committee for consideration and the Committee will make a recommendation to the Parish Council.

The Parish Council’s decision will be final.
