Petersfield Town Council makes grants to organisations each year. The sum involved is set by the Council during its usual budget process. The grants are to assist local organisations and clubs with projects or costs.

Grants are divided into 3 categories, termed Perennial, Community and Capital.

Petersfield Infant School received £500 from the local council to improve its composting facilities. This money was spent on new rotating bins for a composting area in the playground, compost caddies for each classroom and year group recycling bins. Each classroom has a compost caddy which is then emptied into the main bins. This is then rotated and broken down into compost which will then be used to fertilize flower beds around the school. This has enabled the school to complete its objective on the Eco-Schools action plan to reduce waste in the school.
