Grant applications will usually be considered by the Policy & Finance Committee bi-monthly.
Please contact the office for further information on deadlines.
Applicants are required to complete the Council’s Grant Application form to apply for grant aid, and to provide all the information requested. Completion of the form does not necessarily entitle the applicant to an award; this is at the discretion of the Council.
There are regulatory restrictions on the type of activity which may be awarded a grant, for example, it is important that there is benefit to the Town and/or local residents.
Applications can be made for capital or revenue expenditure or special projects. Any organization awarded in excess of £500 will be invited to the next Full Council meeting to have the award presented by the Town Mayor. Any award in excess of £2,000 in any one year will be required to submit a written report detailing how the funds have been spent.
In considering applications for grant aid, the Council will take into account the purpose for which the grant is required, the organisation’s accounts, how the grant will benefit the residents of Ringwood, other bodies to which applications for financial assistance have been made, and any other supporting information.
Organisations are not restricted to the number of grant applications that may be made over a period of time. However, the history of previous applications will be considered in the decision making process.
