Small Grants Scheme
Ripon City Council is pleased to announce that the Small Grants Scheme for 2021/22 is now open for applications.
The Council recognise the disruption to our local groups and organisations caused by the COVID pandemic and aim to support as many different activities in the City as possible in the coming financial year.
With this in mind the scheme will not have a closing date in 2021/22 and will remain open until funds are exhausted. We will review the applications received at each meeting of council for review and a decision.
The Small Grants Scheme is designed to be an easy to access source of funding for local organisations, with applications accepted from registered charities, not for profit and community organisations based within the city.
Ripon City Council has made the following small grants awards in 2020-21:
Ripon Community Link – £967

In addition to the small grants scheme the council has continued to provide funding to its community partners through the Partnership Funding Scheme to allow them to continue their work during the COVID pandemic.
