Project and strategic relationship grants

Types of regional grants

There are two of types of regional grants:

  • 'one-off' project grants, for standalone initiatives awarded at least once per year
  • multi-year strategic relationship grants.

Our tip

To target specific priorities or if there are unspent funds, the committee may run a second funding round for project grants later in the year.

Project grants

For project grants, you will need to complete an application form on the SmartyGrants website.

We will:

  • assess these applications with the help of an assessment panel
  • present their recommendations for the elected members' consideration.

The governing body will work with expert council staff to make allocation decisions and set any grant conditions.
