Grant money available until 23rd January

The Whitnash Community Forum's Grant Fund has £1420 which needs to be spent before the end of the financial year.

Grant applications are welcome from local organisations, but must be provided by Monday 23rd January.

16-17 Community Grant Application Form

The fund operates on a first come, first served basis as long as the application fits with the guidance attached. The maximum funding available for each project is £3,000, and we would encourage match funding from other partners if at all possible, even if that is in-kind support.

Don't forget you will need to ask your local County and District Councillor to sign your application form.

If you would like to discuss a project before you apply, please get in touch with Alistair Rigby, Localities & Communities Officer at: alistairrigby@warwickshire.gov.uk
