Community Council Rural Development Fund – Grants available

Dear Residents

Please see details about a fund for community groups:

The Rural Development Fund supports rural communities across Staffordshire through the allocation of small grants to community groups that are committed to strengthening their community and tackling issues faced by Rural Communities.

The Fund awards small grants of up to £1000 to small rural community groups across Staffordshire and Stoke, where they have a specific need.

Panel meetings are held to determine whether applicants should receive funding and if so how much.  Time sensitive applications may be considered outside of the usual panel dates or in the case of an emergency, but this is at the discretion of the donor advisors of the fund. You are advised to call the Foundation first to see whether your application would meet this need.
