Applying for community development and engagement grants

Eligible applications are assessed against the criteria by our Cabinet for this grant scheme - our guidance notes explain the criteria. 

Please read the guidance document in full before you complete the application form. Applicants are advised to submit their applications as early as possible rather than waiting until the deadline, this will give us more opportunity to ask for further information if we need it to make a proper assessment.  Please click on the links below to make sure that you are using the latest versions of our application form and guidance notes.
