Applying for a Community Cash Grant

The application window for 2017/18 community cash grants has now closed.

Applicants should have received confirmation of receipt of their application and will hear whether or not they have been successful early next year.

In the meantime, applicants may want to find out if they are eligible for Area Committee Funding.

About the grants

Groups working to benefit residents of Ipswich can apply for amounts up to £20,000 for the year, through either of the following:

  1. Community Investment Grant – This grant provides core funding for running costs or pump priming funding for an organisation to build its capacity.
  2. Community Project Grant – This grant is suitable for trying something new or for one-off activities that deliver one or more of the Council’s grants priorities.

Ipswich Borough Council continues its commitment to working with voluntary and community groups to make Ipswich a better place for us all.

There will never be enough money to fund everyone’s projects or meet everyone’s needs, but by being clear about the principles and priorities that are most important to the Council, and our duty to promote equality, we will be able to invest public money effectively and maximise the value of the support we provide.
