Grant applications

Grant Applications

Invitations are invited from community groups wishing to apply for a grant from the Parish Council.

The Parish Council has a budget to distribute grants to community groups, charities and local organisations. We welcome grant applications and aim to ensure that public funds are used to benefit the residents of the community of Perranzabuloe.

The Finance Committee considers grant applications and meets once a month (usually the first Monday of the month).  For grants £5k or more, these are approved at Full Council who also meet once a month (usually the last Monday of the month).

How do I apply?
Application forms may be downloaded from this link or obtained from the Parish Council’s office during office hours (Monday to Thursday 9am to 2pm). Please read the Parish Council’s policy on who can apply and how the application will be assessed before completing the application form. Completed applications must be received 10 working days before the next Finance Committee meeting. They need to be printed out and completed as they must be signed, and include all the other grant information required. They need to be either sent in the post or delivered by hand.

Please see the calendar for dates.

How will the application be assessed?
See the Grants Policy document

What happens next if your application is successful?
The Clerk will write to you within 10 days of the Finance Committee Meeting (for grants under £5k) or within 10 days of the Full Parish Council Meeting (if £5k or over), to notify you if the grant has been approved, to confirm the amount agreed and any specific conditions that may have been applied.

Cheques will only be made payable to the organisation’s bank account – not an individual.

Perranzabuloe Parish Council reserves the right to reclaim the grant in the event of it not being used for the purposes specified on the application form.

We require a grant monitoring form to be completed to describe how the grant has been spent. A grant monitoring form can be downloaded here Grant Monitoring Form
