Community Development Fund Grants are open for applications under new rules to support groups through Covid
Chard Town Council’s Community Development Fund is now open at any time for applications.
Councillors have approved these changes so local community groups that are affected by the fallout of Covid through increased activity and/or reduced income have the opportunity to apply for money at any time rather than having to wait for set deadlines. The fund will remain open until all grant money has been allocated for the financial year.
The Community Development Fund is provided by Chard Town Council to support smaller scale groups to deliver projects that make a difference to the quality of life of people living in Chard. It can be used to fund running costs of not-or-profit organisation or specific projects. We cannot fund political or religious projects other than community benefit work or retrospectively pay for work that has already started. The maximum amount available for each application is £1,000.00 with no minimum limit at up to 75% of the total cost.
