Community Grants

Knutsford Community Grants

Knutsford Town Council operates a community grant scheme to support local community organisations, charities and community interest companies. The council will consider one application from an organisation per financial year (1st April to 31st March) and will not fund salaries, hospitality, religious organisations (except for non-religious activities), core school expenditure or projects with party political links.

It is recommended that applications thoroughly read the council’s grants policy before making an application.

Our scheme is split into three:

  • Donations for grants up to £200
  • Small Grants for grants up to £1,500
  • Large Grants for grants over £1,500 (considered annually)

Funding Outcomes

The Town Council seeks to provide grants which meet at least one of the following outcomes:

  1. Provides improved opportunities/services for those aged 18 and under
  2. Provides improved opportunities/services for those aged 65 and over
  3. Provides a new or improves an existing asset or service which will benefit a significant percentage of residents
  4. Enhances the profile and/or reputation of Knutsford

The council will score applications using information from the application form based on achieving outcomes, value for money, strong governance and fitting with the council’s strategic aims. More information is provided in our grants policy.
