Councillor Community Fund

In 2020-21 the Councillor Community Fund (CCF) will continue to operate as an open-bidding fund to support small community activities and projects in East Staffordshire.

Currently there are two strands of funding available through CCF:

  • Covid-19 community support CCF grant to support groups and organisations to provide assistance to communities with a maximum grant of £500.00 available
  • General CCF grants to support small local community projects with a maximum grant of £1,000.00 available.

Please read the guidance notes for the 2020-21 CCF scheme. If you have a project for which you need some funding then contact your local councillor and if it is suitable they will be able to submit an application on your behalf. The application will be considered at one of our regular panel meeting and your councillor will inform you if you have been successful.
