East Herts Council’s grants programme – now open

Call for projects that strengthen the community  (Up to £8,000 available)

East Herts Council is looking for projects that strengthen the community and lead to improved health and wellbeing of residents.  The next funding round opens today with a closing date of the 3 May 2021.  Our priorities this year are

  • Health for all
  • Community issues, including engaging and consulting
  • Arts and cultural activities that increase residents’ wellbeing
  • Environmentally sustainable and accessible community buildings and green spaces

We are especially interested in projects that benefit people in areas of disadvantage, from different backgrounds and those with protected characteristics.  Faith groups are welcome to apply for projects that benefit the wider community.   We are keen to fund a diverse range of projects all over East Herts.
