Community Grants

Community Grants are available to independent and not-for-profit organisations working for the benefit of local communities in North Hertfordshire.

The Community Engagement team work with residents and other appropriate organisations to identify and respond to issues that promote the development and enhancement of community wellbeing. They improve the ability of people to participate in the work and enjoyment of voluntary groups and activities.

How grants are allocated

The allocation of community grants is decided on by the District Councillors in the town where the project takes place.

These decisions happen at the appropriate Area Committee. Each Area Committee meets four times a year.

If you would like more detailed information on Area Committees, visit the Council Constitution page and select the PDF titled ‘Section 9: Area Committees’.
