About the Community Grant Scheme
Crewe Town Council allocates grant funding through its Community Grant Scheme to groups that can demonstrate a positive impact within the Crewe Town Boundary. Community organisations can apply for up to £2,500 for local projects and activities that reference themes outlined in Crewe’s Community Plan.
The Community Grant Scheme is open for applications throughout the year, with quarterly submission deadlines for applications to be considered by the Community Plan committee. The Scheme application process has recently been revised and the new Grants policy is effective from this month onwards.
The next deadline will be: Sunday 18th December 2023 at midnight.
