The Community Grants Scheme is a unique way of distributing grants for projects which help improve communities by giving residents the power to decide. Community groups can bid for a grant to help them run a small local project and residents will vote to make the final decision on which projects will be delivered in their neighbourhood. The funding has been made available by Hampshire County Council and is allocated to specific areas which are served by a County Councillor.
Who can apply?
Community or voluntary organisations that provide a service to, or specifically benefit residents living in the relevant County Division within the District of East Hampshire. Organisations should be not-for-profit and hold a bank account requiring at least two signatories. A member of your organisation must be available to attend and present your project and take part in your local voting event.
How much can I apply for?
Organisations may apply for small grants between £250-£1,000 (Funding must be allocated by March 2013 and spent within 6 months).
The closing date for applications is the Friday 22nd February 2013
Where can projects be delivered?
Projects must be delivered in, or benefit residents from, the area for which the funding is applied. This funding aims to support small, local projects.

The Community Grant Scheme will fund small projects that specify clearly how they will improve local communities. This could include aims such as:
