Community Grants Scheme Open



More Green Grants are available for community groups in the district, with the next application deadline for Blaby District Council’s Community Grants scheme looming.

Green Grants of up to £4000 can support Community Groups who have projects including low carbon heating and electricity adaptations, composting and litter picking related equipment and waste reduction or recycling measures.

The Green Grants join the other grants available, ranging from £500-£4,000 and suited to a variety of different projects:

  • Capital Green Grants – up to £4000 (20% match funding required)
  • Revenue Green Grants – up to £500
  • Large Capital Grants – up to £4,000 (50% match funding required)
  • Small Capital Grants – up to £500
  • Revenue Grants – up to £500
  • Everyone Active Grants – up to £500

The next deadline for applications in the summer round of grants is 5pm on Wednesday 1 September.

Councillor Sharon Coe, Portfolio Holder for Health, Wellbeing, Community Engagement and Business Support said: “The Community Grants are an important part of our offering to voluntary groups in the district, particularly with the impact the pandemic has had.

“We’re encouraging all community groups in the district to take a look and see how these grants can support your project. Whether it’s a coach trip to the seaside or major improvement works, there’s a grant to help you!”
