Apply for Community Board funding

Applications for Community Board funding is currently closed due to local elections and will reopen in June 2021.

Please contact your Community Board Coordinator if you have any questions or project and funding proposals you would like to discuss.

The funding criteria for 2021-22 will be available in June 2021.

In 2020-21 there were three types of funding you could apply for:

  • Community Area Priorities Fund
  • Health and Wellbeing Fund
  • Local Infrastructure Fund (launching September 2020)

In order to apply, organisations must fulfill the criteria specific to the type of funding they are applying for.

Before making an application, it is important that you discuss your applications with your Community Board Coordinator to make sure your application would be eligible and that there are sufficient funds available.

Budget allocation

In 2020 to 21, Community Boards will need to allocate their budgets by 31 March 2021. Allocated funds can be reserved for the following financial year to enable projects to be completed.

Once the budget has been fully allocated for the financial year the fund will close. If the budget has been fully allocated it may be possible to re-submit an application in the following financial year.

Community Board Coordinators will work with external organisations to help identify potential match funding from different sources to maximise impact. This includes considering projects that cross multiple board areas that may be supported by neighbouring board areas where appropriate.
