NCIL Ward funding

We are open for applications from 26th September 2021 to 11.59pm on 21st November 2021.

We have a total NCIL Ward Fund of £2,931,270 available to fund projects which support and benefit their community and neighbourhoods. Each ward has its own specific funding pot and set of priorities for example; community projects, youth services, green spaces, community facilities, air quality.

Projects should fit within the 5 or 6 priorities chosen by residents at their ward assembly. A further Covid-19 Recovery priority has been added across all wards to help wards areas recover, rebuild and adapt following the pandemic. 

We have grants for small, medium and large scale projects  from under £10,000 to over £250,000 that are delivered by individual organisations or in partnership. 

Before completing the application work you are advised to attend a workshop. Find out more or register to attend a workshop.
