The Community Grant is designed to support community activities and wellbeing. It is aimed at community groups and voluntary organisations in Dacorum.

We have made a number of changes to our community grants:

  • Projects must support our vision and priorities and the five ways to wellbeing (see guidance, below, for more details)
  • We've reduced the maximum grant from £5,000 to £3,000 (see guidance, below, for more details)
  • We've changed the grants rounds to May, July and November (from May, September, January)
  • Informal, non-constituted groups can apply for funding (see guidance, below, for more details)

Grants rounds closing dates

  • Spring 2017 – Friday 26 May
  • Summer 2017 – Friday 28 July
