General Grant Applications
Applications should be submitted by 31st July 2021 which will then be considered by Committee in August/September 2021, with an opportunity for the relevant managers and other officers to consider applications which are appropriate to their departmental and individual areas of responsibility and make a recommendation to the committee and the chair of the committee. Cheques will be presented at the September 2021 Full Council meeting.

Core Funding Applications
If your organisation wishes to be considered for core funding in the 2021/22 Budget, applications should be submitted by 31st July 2021. Core Funding grants usually covers the long term to ensure that a local organisation has a sustained source of funding to cover operational costs. Core grants are considered in the year prior to the grant being awarded. When setting the budget (between September and January), the Council will consider whether existing core funding should continue and if any additional core funding applications should be budgeted for. Cheques will be presented at the July 2022 Full Council meeting.
