Community Grant Funding

Community Grant Funding

We recognise the important role that community groups play in making North Lincolnshire an excellent place to work, live and play. We also wish to support talented individuals to become the very best that they can in their chosen activity. We have increased the funds available to support community groups and talented individuals. In return, recipients of grant funding will have to help to deliver key priorities for the area.

We will expect groups, where appropriate, to show that their projects will reduce the impact on the environment, tackle crime and the fear of crime, improve health, reduce health inequalities and provide support for vulnerable adults and children.

Applicant organisations must have policies addressing all statutory responsibilities including health and safety, safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and equality and diversity, which meet recognised standards of good practice. Read our Guidance and Checklist for Child Protection Policies [PDF, 152Kb] for more information.

Applications are currently being considered on a rolling programme as received.

Please note we will not normally consider applications for support with the cost of staffing.

Pre-application support is available. Please contact us to discuss your application prior to submission:
