Grants

 

Each year the Council identifies funds in its budget to be used for grants.  In addition to this the Council is responsible for the management of a number of charities or trusts.  

 

Who can apply for a grant?

We welcome applications from community and voluntary groups, charities and non-profit making organisations that benefit the community of Appleby-in-Westmorland.  We do not accept applications from individuals or businesses whose purpose is to make a profit.

To be eligible groups and organisations must have their own constitution and bank account with at least two unrelated signatories.

 

What can be funded?

Grants are available for either projects or events that benefit the residents of Appleby-in-Westmorland. 

 

How much can be applied for?

The minimum grant is £50 and the maximum £2,000.  Each application will be considered on its own merits but the presumption is that grants will typically be £250.  Awards towards the maximum level will be the exception and such projects and events will need to demonstrate significant community need and match funding.  All grants require a minimum of 20% match funding although 10% can be in-kind.

 

How to apply?

The Council considers grant applications in January and July each year.  Applications to be considered in January must be received by the 30th November.  Applications to be considered in July must be received by 31st May.
