Community grants

The Community Project Grant Scheme is now closed but you can still apply to our other two schemes.


Who can apply?

Uttlesford District Council distributes grants to local community projects, enabling clubs, local councils or organisations to build facilities, pay for training, carry out renovations, or complete countless other projects. 

The council administers three different types of grant: Community Project Grants, Leisure and Cultural Grants and Sports Project Grants.

Applications for Leisure and Cultural Grants and Sports Project Grants are considered on a monthly basis and can be no larger than £500. Please remember that you must have match-funding equal to the size of the grant you are applying for. The Community Project Grant Scheme is for larger projects such as the development of land for recreational purposes, children's play areas, car parks and refurbishment of facilities with amounts available from £100 up to a maximum of £3,500. This scheme is now closed to applications for 2017/18 funding.
