Apply now for a £10k Lewes community grant

Voluntary organisations and community groups in Lewes district are being invited to bid for community grants of up to £10,000.

Lewes District Council has launched its Community Grants Programme and groups have until midnight on Tuesday, July 30, 2024, to apply.

Applications should be made either under category one – Cost of Living, for which grants of between £500 and £10,000 a year are available, or category two – Equality and Inclusion, which offers grants from £200 to £5,000 a year.

Councillor Johnny Denis, Cabinet Member for Arts, Culture, Tourism and Leisure, said: “We are fully committed to supporting our local voluntary sector and these grants recognise the immense contribution that community groups make in Lewes district. In recent years, we have extended our funding cycle so that money is awarded annually for three years rather than one, providing local groups with more security and greater opportunity to make longer-term plans for their valuable work.”

Successful applicants will receive their first of three annual grants in April 2025.

Applications must demonstrate clearly how their project or service meets the criteria set out in the grants programme brochure. Those who apply will be considered by the Grants Working Group, with recommendations presented to Cabinet in November 2024 and applicants informed before Christmas. Payments will commence in April 2025.

Applications are welcomed from voluntary sector organisations, including branches of national charities, and local constituted groups.
