Grants of up to £10,000 available for projects with a focus on prevention and supporting people to take positive actions to reduce the difficulties they experience

This programme is now closed

The Community Grants programme is being funded by Hertfordshire County Council’s Community Wellbeing and Children’s Services teams, managed by Hertfordshire Community Foundation and supported by Connect Hertfordshire.

The HCC Community Wellbeing Team and Children’s Services teams want to work closely with the voluntary sector to improve the quality of life for people and families in Hertfordshire. These grants are designed to complement HCC’s Community First approach. They aim to develop the resilience and capacity of our communities, helping them to help themselves and reduce the demand on statutory services.

The deadline for this programme was 22nd December 2017 and we are no longer accepting applications.
