Discretionary Grants - second application window announced

At a meeting of the Community Affairs Working Group on Monday 7 June 2021, it was decided to announce a second round of Discretionary Grant funding for 2021-2022.

Chichester City Council awards Discretionary Grants each year to local groups to support their work in the Chichester community.

If the answer to these questions is ‘Yes’, it may be time to contact Chichester City Council and find out if we can help.

Are you a Chichester based community group?
Is your fundraising a problem?
Would a small grant help?

Chichester City Council offers small grants to groups based in the city or whose work is mainly focused within the Parish of Chichester.

These grants are available for the purchase of equipment or other capital costs to help your organisation with a specific project.

Grants may, at the discretion of the Community Affairs Committee, be awarded for staff costs but ONLY where these costs are linked to a specific and finite project.

You will need to:

  • be a non-profit making organisation
  • be Chichester focused, either through geographic location or target group
  • provide a simple Business Plan outlining why a grant would help your organisation
  • provide a copy of your latest Audited Accounts or an Income & Expenditure Sheet for the last financial year

You can read more about it here and find all the paperwork you need to apply: Chichester City Council Discretionary Grants

Closing date for applications: Midday on Friday 24 September 2021
