How do I apply?
Applicants for all grant schemes will be required to fill out an application form and provide the requested supporting documentation. You can download an application form or complete online using the relevant links on the grants homepage.
Applications for both the General Community Grant and Councillor's Community Fund schemes will be considered by the Grants Sub-Committee who make a recommendation to the Community Services Committee.
General Community Grant applications are considered quarterly; Councillor's Community Fund applications are considered three times per year.
Applications for both the Climate Change Grant and Northampton in Bloom Start-Up Grant schemes will be considered by the Environmental Services Committee. There is not a specific deadline for these grants.
Where applicants will need to contact and get the support of one of their ward town councillors before making an application, the ward councillor will have to provide a written supporting statement. You can find out who your local ward town councillor is at: www.northamptontowncouncil.gov.uk/councillors

'Officers are here to help so please don't let the form filling put you off. We can offer advice and support in completing the form, just give us a call or send in an email. We are a new Town Council and we really want to enhance the lives of the residents we serve and the distribution of grants is a really good way of doing this.'
Stuart Carter, Town Clerk of Northampton Town Council
