Grants on offer for voluntary and community organisations across rural North Northamptonshire

07 March 2024

Voluntary and Community organisations across the rural areas of North Northamptonshire are being urged to come forward and apply for grants of up to £20,000.

Organisations including parish councils, charities, community groups and school Parent Teacher Associations are all being encouraged to check their eligibility and apply online.

Organisations will be eligible to apply if they can demonstrate that the funding will be used to support the creation of or improvements to local rural green spaces, existing cultural, historic and heritage institutions or active travel enhancements e.g. community transport.

The money is from the area’s allocation of £217,840 for 2024-2025 from the Rural England Prosperity Fund.

The Rural England Prosperity Fund is designed to support those in the more rural areas of North Northants. It is great that we are now able to offer grants of up to £20,000 to organisations that will truly make a difference to rural communities.

So, if you have a project in the pipeline that could improve the lives of people in your community that needs a funding boost, do get in touch.
Cllr David Howes, the council’s Executive Member for Rural Communities and Localism.
We are delighted to be announcing such a comprehensive plan of support for communities across the authority. This pot of funding is just part of our ongoing commitment to supporting communities across rural North Northamptonshire.

If you are a member of an organisation or community group that operates in one of the rural areas of North Northants, I would encourage you to take a look at the information online and apply for a grant before the deadline.
Jason Smithers, Leader of North Northamptonshire Council

Applications are open  until 12 noon on Tuesday 2 April 2024.

This project is funded by the UK government through the Rural England Prosperity Fund.
