Annual Community Grant Guidance Notes

Projects we are unlikely to support

Projects we are unlikely to support include:

  • applications for commercial/profit making organisations
  • applications from town/parish councils
  • projects that are deemed to be in place of statutory bodies
  • national charities, unless the project is solely for the benefit of local residents
  • projects promoting political or religious beliefs
  • funding for individuals
  • projects that have already taken place
  • projects that do not benefit or are not based in the borough of Welwyn Hatfield
  • applications if the funding request is for 100% of the salary of an individual (applications for contribution to a salary for a new post on a fixed term contract will be considered)
  • projects that were funded in the previous 24 months (unless agreed with the chair of theboard prior to submission)
  • funding applications over £20,000 (only be granted in exceptional circumstances)
  • funding requests for contributions to capital costs (such as new buildings)
  • projects that are requesting funding for temporary buildings or structures
  • projects that directly conflict with the council’s priorities
  • organisations that are publically funded such as schools and universities if they are requesting funding for projects for a select group of young people (we will consider projects benefitting the wider community).
