Warwickshire County Council (WCC) has announced the launch of the 2nd round of the Councillors' Grant Fund for 2019/20 which is now open for applications from voluntary and community organisations across the county.

The Councillors’ Grant Fund provides each of Warwickshire County Council’s 57 Councillors with an allocated fund of £6000 to support small-scale projects within their division that can demonstrate support for the following outcomes:

Warwickshire’s communities and individuals are supported to be safe, healthy and independent
Warwickshire’s economy is vibrant and supported by the right jobs, training, skills and infrastructure

All applications should aim to address local issues and improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Warwickshire. In particular, applications which address one or more of the following key priority areas will be supported:

Improving community assets and their sustainability
Improving access to services
Improving financial capability
Improving health and wellbeing
Reducing loneliness and isolation

Please note that for the 2nd round, only a limited number of Councillors have any funds remaining after the 1st round. The full list of Councillors and the amounts they have left can be found on https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/cllrgrants.

In Warwick District, the online fund is only open to the communities of Kenilworth, Lapworth and North Leamington to apply directly to local County Councillors for funding. In all other areas of Warwick District, funding can be applied for through the Warwick District Community Forum Grant Fund.  

Any organisations or groups wishing to apply for Councillor Grant Funding can do so using the online system and the deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 21st October 2019.
