Community Grants

Harpenden Town Council is keen to support local community groups and activities that benefit the Town. The Town Council operates a Community Grants programme where grants up to the value of £2000 can be awarded for projects that would benefit the community of Harpenden.

All applicants for a Community Grant should complete an application form outlining the purpose of the grant. These applications are then considered against the agreed criteria at a Corporate Policy and Finance Committee meeting which are held at regular intervals throughout the year. See our calendar of meetings for more information about the next relevant committee meeting herePlease ensure you submit your completed application forms at least four weeks before the meeting at which it is to be considered.

If you feel that a project which you are working on or would like to work on is eligible, please read the Community Grant Criteria carefully and complete both sections of the application form below:

Application Form Section A

Application Form Section B

For further information about the Community Grant process or to find out the next date when applications are to be considered, please contact Phil Wright at Harpenden Town Council on 01582 463665 or email:

There are other grant streams available including through St Albans District Council.  These grants are managed on behalf of St Albans District Council by Community Central St Albans. For further information visit their website here.

In addition, each Hertfordshire County Councillor has a £10,000 locality budget to spend on worthwhile community projects. If you are a member of a community group or run a local charity, you should discuss your project and the funding required with your County Councillor before making an application online. Contact details for your County Councillor can be found on the Hertfordshire County Council website here.
