Ceredigion Community Grant Scheme - information about the grants and application forms.

The purpose of the scheme is to increase the range of facilities, activities and opportunities within Ceredigion.

Grants are available to Community Groups, Community Councils or bonafide Voluntary Sports and Play Associations who wish to improve and increase the range of facilities, activities and opportunities within Ceredigion.

Voluntary, non-profit making organisations, which are properly constituted will be eligible to apply for assistance. They should be based in the Ceredigion area. However applications from organisations outside the County boundary will be considered where it can be seen that there would be benefit to the inhabitants of Ceredigion.
