Applying for a Grant

Over the next few months, Congresbury Parish Council will be finalising its budget proposals for the financial year 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018.

The Council is allowed, by law, to issue grants to organisations, provided that any funds granted can be demonstrated to be for the benefit of the inhabitants of Congresbury. There are two types of grant; Planned and Emergency. 

A decision to issue a Planned Grant will be made by the Council in April and a grant cheque issued in May. Emergency Grants can be applied for at any time during the year but are dependent on available funds and cannot be guaranteed.

Local organisations who wish to apply for a grant are strongly encouraged to submit their applications for funding by the end of November.   All grant applications must be accompanied by a fully completed application form and a financial statement (eg statement of accounts, income and expenditure).

If your organisation wishes to apply for a significant sum of money (eg over £1,000), then you may also be required to submit a detailed business plan in support of your application.
