Ward Forum Grants still available – Deadline Tuesday 31st March 2020

If you have an idea for a project that is going to benefit your local community and need a small grant of up to £500 then please apply. The criteria for the grant is quite varied but it must benefit the community, it is preferred that your group has a constitution and bank account, but if you haven’t you still may get funding.

If you have an idea for a project in your area and want some advice then please contact Tony King on 0300 555 0266 or email Tony.king@calderdale.gov.uk

One thing you must do is make sure you put as much information on the application form, many projects will not be funded due to poor application forms.

The deadline for the 2019/2020 applications is Tuesday 31st March 2020 so it is advised that you act fast if you would like to apply.

However if you would like a grant before the deadlines please submit your application and include why you need the grant before the deadline.

Good Luck!
