Rent Support Grants can only be accessed by sports and activity clubs that provide a service in the East Devon area and are tenants of East Devon District Council. Statutory agencies, including Town and Parish Councils, are not eligible.

Please make sure you read the application guidance before and whilst completing your application form. Please note that any canvassing of East Devon District Council Elected Members and / or Officers to further your application will lead to automatic disqualification.

It will be your organisations responsibility to apply for the Rent Support Grant if you wish to do so.  If you do not apply, are not eligible or are not successful, you will be liable to pay the new rent as soon as we are aware that you fall into one of these categories.
