HCC has a budget to make discretionary community grants usually up to £3,000* to local community organisations, charities, clubs, societies and groups in any one financial year.
All households within the boundaries of the City of Hereford pay a portion of their council tax (collected by Herefordshire Council) to their parish council – Hereford City Council. HCC therefore has a duty to ensure that grants awarded under this scheme aim to make a difference to the quality of life of people living in Hereford City.
Applications are considered at specific grants meetings held by the Community Development Committee and these dates can be found here.
*Occasionally the committee may consider awarding a larger grant for projects of particular merit where evidence can be provided to show that this service or project is needed.
