Community grants

About the community grants scheme

Community grants handsWe are investing £700,000 in new grant schemes this year, designed to support local groups to meet needs in their communities.

The first of these is the new Ward Councillor Grant Scheme to enable each of the 59 Central Bedfordshire Councillors to work with groups in their areas to explore how relatively small amounts of grant funding could make a difference.

Coming soon

For more significant projects, a Community Assets Grant Scheme will  be introduced at the end of 2019, groups will be able to apply for grants of up to £25,000. The third scheme under development is designed specifically to enable Central Bedfordshire Council to work with towns and parishes across the area to help improve the cleanliness and tidiness of our communities.
