Community Grants Application Invited

Chudleigh Town Council would like to give local community groups the opportunity to apply for a grant. The Town Council has allocated funds within its budget under Section 137 of the Local Government Act which allows local councils to incur expenditure which, in their opinion, is in the interests of, and will bring direct benefit to the town or all or some of its inhabitants.

Who can apply?

  •  The organisation must be based in the Town Council area with a membership of predominantly       Chudleigh residents
  • The organisation will be required to submit a copy of its constitution and their latest accounts. If the organisation does not prepare annual accounts copies of bank statements covering the previous six months will need to be provided.
  • Groups making applications will be expected to demonstrate that other sources of funding have been sought prior to application.

How to apply

Application forms can be obtained from the town Council office. Alternatively, telephone John Carlton on 01626 853140 or e mail clerk@chudleigh-tc.gov.uk

Applications should be submitted by Friday 28 October 2022. The Council will inform applicants of the result of their application by 31 January 2023.

The Town Council reserves the right to verify the details supplied in any application.

Successful applicants will be expected to have spent any grant awarded within 12 months. An income and expenditure statement and appropriate receipts will need to be submitted to the Council on completion of the project. The applicant will be required to return the whole or a proportion of the grant to the Town Council if the purpose of the grant for some reason fails.
