We can fund up to 50% of the total project cost.
The remaining contribution can come from any non-Hampshire County Council source, such as Parish Council funds, landfill tax or local businesses.
The total project cost is made up of expenditure (e.g. materials, tools, contractors) and the value of volunteer time. Contact us if you need help calculating volunteer time contributions.
Volunteer labour can also be used to contribute towards your match funding.
This should be calculated at no more than £50/person/day (i.e. £6.25/person/hour).
Community Service Payback Teams can be used, but this cannot count as volunteer match funding.
We have compiled a list of potential sources of match funding that may be suitable for Small Grants Scheme projects.
If you would like further help contact us.
For further potential sources of funding for community greenspaces see the guidance produced by the Department for Communities and Local Government.
