St Albans & District Council Community Grants 2019/20

The St Albans District Council Community Grants fund 2019/20 is now open.

Constituted voluntary and community groups are invited to apply for grants from a £55,000 fund run by St Albans City and District Council.

Every year St Albans City and District Council offer this financial aid to groups who do valuable and important work in our community to support vulnerable people.

Their community fund has benefitted thousands of people across the District and they want that success to continue in the year ahead.

Groups from Hertsmere can apply, however, beneficiaries of the project will need to be from St Albans & District.

St Albans & District Council in conjunction with Communities 1st will have a Community Grants Information Event on Monday 20th May between 5.30 – 7.00pm at The Hub, St Albans Civic Centre, St Peters Street, St Albans AL1 3JE. No need to book but please email cgf@communities1st.org.uk to let us know you would like to come along.
