Exeter Ward Grants

Community groups can apply for a maximum grant of £500. A Ward Grant can support a community project, a local community festival, a local theatre production or a craft group. Examples of costs that could be supported include equipment or resources, publicity, materials, and refreshments. Applicants for a Ward Grant will need to demonstrate that there is community support for your project. 

Ward grants are for one-off purchases or events and cannot be used for on-going running costs such as wages, utility bills, rent etc.

You can apply for a ward grant for a project to cover one ward. 

If you need any further support to help with your application, then you can contact Exeter Connect on 01392 205800 (lines will be open 9.30am to 4.30pm. Mon-Fri), or email
