Voluntary and community sector organisations in the Daventry area in need of funding are invited to apply for our Voluntary and Community Sector Grant Programme. There are a range of grants covering capital funding, event funding, or funding for small items of equipment, training or volunteer expenses. You can find out more below:
1. Capital Grants
The capital grants scheme is available for organisations needing assistance with capital investment. Projects must be valued over £1,000 and up to 50% of the project cost is available. Grants are available up to a maximum of £15,000, but in exceptional circumstances - and if budgets allow - the Council will consider larger applications.
Deadline dates for applications and the decision dates are included in the guidance notes document which will be sent to you when you request an application form.
2. One-off community event funding
Grants of up to £500 are available to cover the up-front costs of putting on a community event. A key aim of these grants is to enable community groups to raise further funds from their community event. We also expect that community events are free to attend or affordable if there is a charge. Applications are welcome from voluntary and community groups within Daventry District at any time throughout the year.
Applications should be submitted between 4 - 16 weeks ahead of the event date. Applications submitted outside of this window will not be considered. We will do our best to notify applicants of a decision within 2 weeks of the application being received. If successful, the grant will be paid in one lump-sum to the organisation up-front.
3. Community Project Funding
Grants of up to £1,000 are available to voluntary and community groups within Daventry District for the purchase of small items of equipment, or for training and/or volunteer expenses.
