Discretionary Grants

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

You will need to be :
-   A not for profit making organisation
-   Chichester focused, either in organisation or target group
-   Able to provide a simple Business Plan outlining why a grant would help your organisation

Discretionary Grant Application Form

For further details contact the Administration Manager H.Monckton@chichestercity.gov.uk

The City Council will consider all applications at their Community Affairs Committee meeting twice a year in April and October.

However, in the financial year 2018/2019 there will be no meeting in February 2019 as the 2018/2019 Discretionary Grant Budget of £30,000 has been expended on the grant applications received for the July 2018 meeting.

The next Community Affairs Committee meeting to discuss Discretionary Grant applications will be held on Monday 1 April 2019.

All Discretionary Grant applications must be submitted no later than 12pm on Friday 22 March 2019 for consideration at this meeting.

All successful Discretionary Grants will be paid by BACS payment following either the Full Council Meeting in April or December. One representative of the organisation will be asked to attend the Full Council Meeting to give a brief presentation on the role of the organisation and how the money will be expended.
