Fund title: Community Buildings Fund (East Devon)

Focus of fund/fund aims:

Grants for community buildings in rural areas of East Devon

Application deadline:

29 June 2018 and 11 January 2019 (please note that if all funds are granted in June there will be no funding available in January)

Fund description:

Village halls, community buildings and community shops in East Devon can apply for grants of up to £5,000 from East Devon District Council’s Community Buildings Fund. The funding is for capital building projects or refurbishments in East Devon’s villages and rural areas (areas covered by a town council are not eligible).

The aim of the Community Building Fund is to help rural community buildings and community shops all around East Devon with funding for projects such as new or improved toilet facilities, kitchen facilities, roof repairs, heating and new door fixtures.

You can apply for a maximum of £5,000 and there must be match funding available of at least twice the amount of the funding from other sources plus local fundraising. So, for a grant of £5,000 you would need to show that you can obtain £10,000 from elsewhere.
