Sustainable Communities Fund

Sustainable Communities Fund

Any partnership or other not for profit organisations which include social enterprise, community interest companies, voluntary organisations and ‘for profit’ organisations (these projects cannot be for financial gain to the business) can apply for funding if they believe their project is bringing social, environmental, economic or cultural benefits to a community within the National Park.

Grants are available for up to 50% of the project cost from £250 to a maximum of £10,000. Please note that the criteria of the fund are regularly reviewed and may change without notice. The National Park Authority is not obliged to consider applications under criteria which were in place when an enquiry or expression of interest was made.

Application forms are not available for download as we encourage an initial conversation about your project – please contact the External Funding Co-ordinator on 01730 819219 or grants@southdowns.gov.uk
