Information for grant applicants
Stonehouse Town Council will adopt a 2 tier system for assessing and approving grant applications.
Grants under £1000
Grants under £1000 will be considered at any time of the year and a decision is likely to be given within a 2 month period.
Grants over £1,000
Grants over £1,000 will be considered but maybe deferred to the following year.
Who can apply?
As the money that is available for grants is very limited the Council has guidelines which it follows when deciding which applications to approve. These are:
The organisation applying must be non-profit-making
The organisation should be Stonehouse based and provide a useful service to the community
Provide a facility that is used by Stonehouse residents
Be an organisation which is not Stonehouse based, but which can show that it provides a service or facility which is used by a significant number of Stonehouse residents.
What will we not fund?
1. Retrospective funding, 2. Funding for individuals, 3. Funding for political activities, 4. Applications for events exclusively for members for a particular faith group. 5. The grant will not support other public sector bodies i.e. schools, social services, however community and voluntary groups associated with these may apply.
How do I apply?
To support your application you should enclose a copy of the audited accounts of your organisation for the last financial year and a recent bank statement dated within 3 months OR if a new group, a full financial plan for the year.
