Grants are available to Community Organisations supporting Rural Communities across Staffordshire – closing date 23rd August 2022

Dear Residents

We have been provided with the following information:

The Rural Development Fund awards small grants of up to £1,000 to small rural community groups across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, where they have a specific need.

The main beneficiaries of this fund are small community and voluntary groups in Staffordshire and Stoke, where their income is less than £30,000 per annum. The groups must be based or working in Staffordshire or Stoke and cannot be operating outside of the county. The aims of the project should be working towards the encouragement and promotion of developing rural community life.

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 advisers of the fund. You are advised to call us first to see whether your application would meet this need.
