Apply now for Community Grants 2019/20
East Garston Parish Council encourages community groups and projects to flourish. For several years they have operated a programme of grants to encourage community groups and individuals to establish new projects and facilities that will benefit the community. This programme uses the discretionary powers held by the Parish Council under section 137 of the Local Government Act 1972.
Community organisations are invited to apply for a grant of up to £500 for projects that can be identified as having a significant benefit to the community. In the year 2018/2019 East Garston Parish Council has earmarked a total fund of up to £1000 for approved projects. It is hoped that this will continue as an annual programme but will be reviewed each year subject to affordability.
Applications are now open for the award of grants in 2019-20. Applications must be submitted no later than 30th June 2019
