Councillor Community Fund

In 2021-22 the Councillor Community Fund (CCF) will continue to operate as an open-bidding fund to support small community activities and projects in East Staffordshire. CCF grants of up to a maximum of £1,000.00 are available to support small, local community projects.

Please read the guidance notes for the 2021-22 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.
