Grant Applications

Collingham with Linton Parish Council has a small budget for the award of grants. The Council can only award grants using certain legal powers. The Council must be confident that any grant awarded will benefit Collingham with Linton residents.

Grants will be considered as and when they are received by the Parish Council. Grants must meet the Council’s grant criteria which are set out below and applications must be made on the Parish Council’s application form. All applications must be accompanied by appropriate accounts or supporting financial information. Forms and the supporting information must be returned to the Clerk of the Council by the deadline stated on the form.

How will the application be assessed?

The application will be assessed on the following criteria:
