Tring Town Council sets aside a small budget each year to help groups with expenses for equipment or events. It is able to offer grants to voluntary groups provided they meet its criteria; unfortunately, for legal reasons, it cannot give money to individuals.
Applications must be addressed to the Clerk of the Council, with a brief covering note on your organisation’s headed paper. You can download a grant application form by going to this link: Small grants application form
Applications must be accompanied by a set of the group’s last audited/examined accounts; or copies of recent bank statements, if a small group. It is also helpful if you are able to indicate where else you have sought funding, and what percentage of your membership or beneficiaries are from Tring Town.
Applications will then be put to the Council’s Finance & Policy Committee, which meets five times a year; please see the meetings page for the dates. Please ensure details of the application reach the Clerk at least a week before any meeting. Late applications of an urgent nature can sometimes be accommodated. Please ring or email for advice.
Applicants will normally receive a decision letter within a fortnight of the Committee meeting. Successful applicants will find a cheque enclosed.
Any grant awarded must be acknowledged in any publicity or literature you subsequently produce.
Further information can be obtained from the Clerk of the Council; please make contact via the Council Staff page.
