Ward Councillor Grant Scheme

Ward Councillor grant scheme

Ward Councillor Grant

If you are involved in a local group or project in your area that needs some help or you have an idea about doing something for the community but need some funding to get it going then speak to your ward councillor.

Each Central Bedfordshire councillor has access to £2,000 from which they can allocate grants to local projects that demonstrate a community benefit. Councillors can also work together across a ward to combine their grants if that’s what is most needed.

So, whether it is cultural, environmental, sporting or social projects, and you have match funding, contact your local councillor.

You must secure support from your ward councillor and read the guidance notes (PDF) before applying.
