Mayor's Small Grants Fund

Mayor's small grants fund

Peter Taylor, Mayor of Watford

Mayor’s Small Grants Fund 2021-22 is closed.

Due to the huge demand on my funding programme, I have now closed the Mayor’s Small Grants Fund 2021-22.  My new funding programme will open for applications in April 2022.  This fund aims to provide informal groups, ‘not for profit’ Voluntary & Community Sector (VCS) constituted organisations, registered charities, Community Interest Companies (CIC) and sports clubs the opportunity to apply for a grant.

Further information on my criteria and priorities for next year will be updated here in due course.

In the meantime if you have any questions, please contact us.
