Brentwood Community Fund 2019 - Now open for applications until 27 September
In partnership with Axis, we are pleased to launch this year’s Brentwood Community Fund, inviting local organisations and individuals to bid for funding for community projects.
Grants of up to £4000 are available for causes and projects that will improve the quality of life for local people and tackle important issues.
Bids can be made by individuals, groups and organisations, and will be assessed and reported to Committee in December, when a decision on the allocation of funding will be made.
Previous applicants may apply if they are proposing a new project, but priority will be given to those who have not received any previous funding from the Community Fund or the Localism Share Fund. Projects must benefit Brentwood communities, be delivered in the Borough and they should demonstrate volunteer or community involvement.
They should also be able to show they are sustainable long term and firmly support the community-based priorities in the Council's Vision for Brentwood 2016-2019, under the key themes of:
- Environment and Housing Management
- Community and Health
- Economic Development
Applications should be made by completing the online Application Form.
