 Grant Applications 2022/2023

It’s that time of year again when we open up our window for applications for grants - this time for 2022/2023 !
We aim to offer as many grants as we can to benefit the community groups of Howden, however our powers and financial resources are limited.
In the present economic climate there are many competing pressures on finances, and we are conscious of the need to strike a balance between the desire to restrict the financial burden on local taxpayers and the continued provision of services for the community.
Our funds are drawn from local tax paid by all Howden residents and therefore our policy is to prioritise support for organisations providing services across the community of Howden. We do not fund individuals unless their project is to benefit the community of Howden.
We like to fund things such as:
• Services to aid the community of Howden
• Repair and replacement of town assets and built heritage
• Projects to alleviate the disadvantages of being a rural market town
• Community engagement ideas
• Improvement of our natural heritage
Priority will be given where:
• the funds will be project-based, as opposed to being put into reserves;
• there is evidence of active fund-raising from other sources;
• optimal use is being made of existing resources, including ‘in-kind’ and voluntary help.
The deadline this year is Friday December 10th 2021 at 12 noon.
If you would like to receive a grant application pack or require further information please get in touch with me by emailing me at clerk@howden-tc.gov.uk.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you
Sarah (Proper Officer and Responsible Finance Officer)
