Voluntary and community sector grants

Press Release: 23/12/2003

Application forms are now available for Winchester City Council’s Community Grant Programme. The scheme provides support to a range of voluntary groups, including housing organisations, and arts organisations that provide services to the residents of the Winchester district.

Over the last five years the Community Grant programme has awarded over £2.2m in revenue funding to a wide range of organisations and groups across the district.

There are two categories of funding:

  • Capital grants for physical building improvements and equipment costs
  • Revenue grants for organisational running costs

All applicants must meet the basic criteria, which are based on the City Council’s corporate priorities.

The closing dates for applications are:

  • Revenue grants – Monday 12 January
  • Capital grants – Monday 2 February
