This section provides information about the capital grants that the council allocates to voluntary organisations on an annual basis.
The Council's capital grants programme is currently closed. Applications to access funding in 2016/2017 will be available in June 2015.
What are Capital Grants?
Capital grants are paid to meet the cost of major projects; usually for building works such as replacing an old and leaky roof.
The test of whether a grant application might fall under this heading is that it should either create a new asset for the local community, or substantially enhance an existing one.
Capital grants are likely to be higher in value than many other grants that the Council makes - typically between £5,000 and £20,000.
As a result somewhat different arrangements apply to the application process. Also, due to the high value of the grants concerned, the Council is unable to award many grants in any given year.
Organisations applying for capital grants must complete the capital grants application form. Explanatory notes for the specific additional criteria are set out below.
The Council is seeking to fund assets that will be made available for use by the whole community - hence the requirement for the applicant to submit a policy statement or equivalent (e.g. admissions policy) showing that this is the case.
The capital grant scheme is currently closed. However, should you wish to refer to the application form you can download a copy of last years form here.
This form will work best if you download the latest version of Adobe reader (Adobe website).
Access to informationApplicants are asked to note that any information submitted to the Council as part of their application for funding may be made publicly available.
If you require any further information or advice about an application please contact the Partnerships Co-ordinator on 01737 276026 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
