Special Projects Grants

Special Projects Grants

The Special Projects Fund is a themed grant stream, which has been set up so that the council’s aim becomes more explicit both to local organisations and to the community. The Special Projects theme for 2020-21 is Emergency and Recovery:

Organisations who have been hit by extra or unexpected costs as a result of the COVID emergency and its aftermath can ask for Special Projects support. Grants are not likely to be awarded simply for replacement of lost income but help with actual or upcoming costs which are hard to meet because of lost income will be considered.
