Grants

Grants

We provide a range of grants to support the county's community and voluntary groups. We manage over 100 different funds, all of which aim to tackle deprivation and improve social welfare in Hertfordshire, some of which are tailored more specifically to the interests of our donors.

It’s our job to match the funds available with the needs in the county and we do it by encouraging, and in some cases actively seeking out applications.
