Find out how you can apply for a grant to support projects benefiting your local community.

You can use a ward grant for one-off projects, equipment or resources that will provide a benefit to the local community and achieve your local objectives. 

You cannot use the grant for projects that already exist or for general running costs of your organisation. 

Councillors in each ward are encouraged support a variety of groups and projects. For the 2021/22 financial year, each ward in Rushmoor has a budget of £3,000 to award under this scheme. The minimum grant is £50. 

You can check the Ward grants - funding available per ward document to see the amount of funding available in each ward's budget. This document will be updated monthly once grants have been awarded.
