The Community Grant Fund

 

Principles of the Grant:

1 The grant should be available to all under 25s who reside permanently within the parish boundary of Dickleburgh & Rushall.

3 The grant should constitute an amount of money which should contribute towards funding the activity or equipment. Evidence should be provided to clearly demonstrate funding from other sources.

4 There should, in the proposal, be a clear positive outcome for the individual or small group that leads to improved performance, skill, knowledge or understanding.

5 Each application should be unique.
