Neighbourhood Development Fund

The new Neighbourhood Fund provides the opportunity to secure some of the financial support required to deliver a project within your neighbourhood in East Staffordshire. The fund is for one off grants for capital projects and guidance is available.

If you have an idea for a project then you can contact your Neighbourhood Coordinator 01283 508037/8 or neighbourhoods.team@eaststaffsbc.gov.uk and they can provide you with an overview of the funding process and guidance.The Neighbourhood Team can also support you through the different stages:

  • Expressions of interest - there is an expression of interest form that you can complete which will be assessed at the monthly panel meetings. If your project is suitable it will proceed to the next stage.
  • Presentation - this is an opportunity for the project group to present their ideas to the funding panel. The project will be assessed and if successful an in-principle offer of funding will be made and the application will proceed to the final stage.
  • Final submission - at this stage, all permission and match funding needs to be in place so that a final submission can be made and the in-principle offer confirmed and your project can then commence.
