Quick and easy process for community funding

Community projects across the Folkestone & Hythe district are set to benefit from up to £90,000 of funding from ward councillors.

Ward grant scheme

Folkestone & Hythe District Council (F&HDC) is launching its ward budget scheme for 2020/21 - with each of the authority's 30 councillors having £3,000 to allocate to local organisations.

And to make the process even simpler, applicants can now send bids to their representatives by completing an easy-to understand online form. This can be found by clicking here.

Cllr Jenny Hollingsbee, F&HDC Cabinet Member for Communities, said: "More than 80 organisations benefited from the scheme in 2019/20. Many of the successful community projects would not have been possible without the funding they received.

"The new online application form will make the process quicker for local groups already doing so much for their communities. I am sure our councillors are already looking forward to receiving a wide range of different bids."

Projects to have received support from the scheme in the last year include Folkestone Festivals, Seapoint Canoe Centre and CARM (Caring All Together on Romney Marsh).

Click here for a full breakdown of those eligible to apply. Applications can be made to ward councillors - who will determine whether bids are successful or otherwise - until all of their budget has been allocated.
