We help local voluntary or community organisations provide projects for Hackney residents - such as youth activity schemes, health advice, employment advice and safety improvements - through our grants programme.
2019/20 grants programme
We're pleased to announce the launch of our A Place for Everyone - Hackney VCS grants programme 2019/20. For details of next year's grants programme, see our Hackney CVS grants prospectus 2019/20 [pdf, 567.65Kb] which provides information on the types of grants available, the eligibility criteria and how to apply.
Main grants (including holiday play schemes)
Main grants of between £5,000 - £30,000 for a 1 year grant are available for projects which contribute to the programme's priorities and equality objective. Applications have now closed.
This year voluntary and community sector organisations can apply for small grants between £1,000 and £5,000 for projects that contribute to one or both of our two priorities:
- promote social inclusion, encourage independence and develop personal resilience
- build positive relations between different groups and communities that will maintain the high levels of community cohesion in Hackney
Applications for the first round will open in the afternoon of Monday 15 October and close 12 noon on Monday 26 November.
Please read the small grant application guidance document for help on completing your application. You'll also need the small grants proposed delivery schedule to complete your application.
