Here for Grants
Northampton Town Council has a commitment to encourage, support and promote the community through its variety of impactful grants and funding opportunities.
The Councillors' Community Fund and The General Community Grants scheme both offer great opportunities for local groups, charities and organisations to apply for a share of the £175,000 allocated for grants in the next financial year. These schemes are designed to enable projects that will enhance the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of their local community or the larger proportion of Northampton. Find out more below.
Our latest grant schemes include our Climate Change Grant and Northampton in Bloom Start-Up Grant. Have you got a project that aims to combat the impact of global warming locally? Or do you have a local resident's group who would like to get involved with our sustainable planting initiative? Apply below.
