Grant applications need to be made by non-profit making organisations and groups that directly benefit people within the community and the environment, and can be for projects or services that include:

Councillor Yvette Gubb, Executive Member for Community, saod: “These grants are a fantastic opportunity to provide funds to so many different and worthwhile projects within each ward of North Devon.
“However, even though we have this funding available, we need groups to come forward in the first place to apply for a grant. So, if you think your organisation may benefit from a councillor grant, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!”
Grants will be available from September 5. For more information and an application form, visit www.northdevon.gov.uk/councillorgrants. You can also phone Corporate and Community Services on 01271 388327 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
