Up to £500 can be applied for and groups should have a constitution and bank account, however groups can apply without a constitution or bank account but you must show how your project benefits the community and if successful invoices will be paid direct by the North East Halifax neighbourhood team.

Decisions on who gets a grant is made by a Ward Forum grants panel made up of neutral community representatives.

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
