Community Grants

The community fund provides grants of up to £1,000 for capital projects that help and support the community.

Organisations are invited to submit proposals for funding of up to £1,000 for the 2023/24 year.

Grants can be used for the purchase of materials and equipment, or the provision of a service that makes Lyme Regis a better place to live, work and play.

Applications will only be considered from non-profit making organisations who do not provide grants or donate monies to others, and funding cannot be used for retrospective expenditure.

Grant guidelines and application forms are available by email or can be downloaded below.

Applications must be returned by 5pm on Monday 27 February 2023. Applications will be considered by the council on Wednesday 29 March 2023.
