Newark and Sherwood Community Grant Scheme – Deadline 22nd December 23

Active Notts, Funding, News

The Newark and Sherwood Community Grant Scheme aims to support a variety of district based registered not-for-profit organisations. Projects should lign to the Council’s Community Plan objectives.

Grants of up to £20,000 are available. Any grant awarded over £5,000 will need to demonstrate match funding at 50% above the £5,000 threshold.
Applications will be assessed a minimum of twice a year unless all funding has been allocated.

To be successful, applicants will need to demonstrate:

• A local need for the project.
• How the project contributes to one or more of the council’s community plan objectives.
• That the project takes place within the district.
• Financial information to support application.
Additional weighting will be given to those projects that meet the following criteria:
• Projects that contribute to overcoming the cost-of-living crisis.
• Projects that contribute to public protection by reducing crime or anti-social behaviour.
• Projects that improve bio-diversity or contribute to reducing climate change.
• Projects that can demonstrate match funding (above £5k).

Applications must be submitted by mid-day on 22 December 2023.
