The full category list can be seen on the website:  https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/cllrgrants

Applications can be submitted on the council’s website, and there are two different forms depending on whether the grant needed is over or under £350. Applications can be submitted from Monday 20 May at 9am, and the deadline for submission is Sunday 30 June at 5pm.

To support the application process, the Community Partnerships Team and WCAVA will be holding engagement sessions which will provide guidance and answer questions related to the application process. Contact your local Localities and Communities Officer (below) for more information and to book onto a session.
