Council invites local groups to apply for grants

Kettering Borough Council is inviting applications from local groups and individuals to receive up to £5,000 from its selection of Capital Community Grants for 2017/18.

A total of £72,000 is available through the Grant Scheme, which supports voluntary and community groups to carry out activities that enhance the quality of life for local residents and increase their involvement within the community.

There are two main capital schemes and both help voluntary and community organisations to deliver projects that contribute to supporting the Council’s strategic priorities within the Borough:

The Capital Community Hall Grant ranges from £500 to £5,000. This funding is open to projects that help to sustain Community Halls that benefit local people and the local community.

The Capital Community Fund ranges from £500 to £2,500. It is open to projects that meet one or more of the following criteria:

* Community based projects

* Environmental improvements

* Health and Safety Improvements

Grant guidelines and applications are now available online at

The closing date is Friday 26th May 2017.

Preference will normally be given to projects where some form of match funding exists.
