Small Grants Scheme
What you can apply for
- The Small Grants Scheme provides funding for improvements to countryside access and rights of way
- Advice and up to 50% of the total project cost is available, up to a total grant of £5,000 (or £10,000 for Quality Parishes).
- Up to 75% of the total project cost is available for projects in the New Forest, due to an additional 25% funding from the New Forest National Park Authority.
Who can apply
- Parish or Town Councils.
- Other organisations (e.g. charities, volunteer/community groups) may apply for interpretation materials (e.g. mapboards, leaflets) to promote countryside access, however for practical improvements the organisation will need to contact the relevant Parish/Town Council to apply on its behalf.
