Apply for LJC grant funding
Each LJC has its own budget to spend on priorities identified by the local community.
What can a grant be used for?
This money can be used to support local community and voluntary activity, to implement parish plans and to improve local service delivery, including:
- Repairs to community buildings
- Sports and play equipment
- Heritage projects
- Arts projects
- Trips and visits
- Festivals and community events
We have already awarded grants to a wide range of community groups and projects.
How much could we apply for?
To date, grants have ranged in size from £100 to £14,000.
The amount of money available to each LJC is relative to the number of people living in the area and has been rural-proofed (weighted to take account of the higher cost of delivering services in areas that are more sparsely populated).
In 2011/12 the LJC budgets vary in size from £9,000 to £37,000.
