The Tenant Bids Fund is for the benefit of tenants and leaseholders who identify a project which will improve the communities where they live. 

The project should benefit the community and not just one individual tenant.

The Bids Fund is financed from tenants’ rent money and so while leaseholders can suggest a bid there must be support from tenants in their community.

For more information, please contact the Customer Engagement team on 01509 634955 or 01509 634679. Alternatively, you can email
