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. All organisations or clubs receiving these grants must fulfil the Council’s Grant Service criteria (please refer to the Grants Policy Document link below for full details).
Grants are divided into 3 categories, termed Perennial, Community and Capital.
- Perennial Grants:
These are a special category of grants given annually to a set of organisations which are judged to contribute to the whole community and which are not usually capable of covering their full running costs; these grants may be used as part of these.
- Capital Grants:
These are grants in excess of £3,000 that are awarded to community groups, organisations or clubs that are seeking to undertake capital projects of varying descriptions.
- Community Grants:
These are grants towards smaller projects under £3000.
Applications must be received either by 1 January or 1 June. Applications forms are available to download below, or can be collected from the Town Hall Offices. If you would like further information regarding grants then please contact The Town Clerk, Neil Hitch on 01730 264182.
