The Local Fund now open for applications

THE LOCAL FUND for the Harrogate District is now OPEN for applications!

Established in 2018 THE LOCAL FUND is a grant funding scheme available only to local Harrogate district voluntary and community sector groups and organisations. The fund supports projects and activities that benefit local communities and residents that have a positive impact on the wellbeing of people, especially those facing equality and disadvantage. More »

The fund aims to grow local giving and provide a sustainable source of funding for small voluntary and community groups, small charities and other types of not for profit organisations provided that they can clearly demonstrate that the purpose of the organisation is wholly charitable.

The 2020/2021 allocation will focus on supporting small organisations who have suffered financial hardship due to financial challenges of this most unusual year. Grants will be targeted at small organisations with charitable aims where a small amount of money can make a significant difference. Applicants must be based in and/or working in the Harrogate district.

Size of grants
In this funding round, grants are available of up to £5,000. Applying organisations must have an income of under £200,000 a year (based on the most recent annual accounts). However priority will be given to charities with a turnover of under £150,000 and those that can clearly demonstrate how a small grant can make a real difference to their viability.

How to apply?
For more information please go to the 'How to Apply' page for detail on general eligibility and the application process. Please consider THE LOCAL FUND Harrogate Guidance Notes 2020 for this grant scheme carefully before applying.

When to apply?
The deadline for this round is the 11th of January 2021. Panel decisions will be made in February. » Less

HBC Local Restrictions Support Grant

Harrogate Borough Council's Local Restrictions Support Grant is now open for applications from eligible businesses.

A business may be eligible for a grant if it:

* is situated in the Harrogate district

* occupies property on which it pays business rates (and is the ratepayer)

* has been required to close for at least 14 days because of the restrictions

* has been unable to provide its usual in-person customer service from its premises. For example, this could include non-essential retail and personal services that operate primarily as an in-person venue, but which have been forced to close those services and provide a takeaway-only service instead.
