2. What we will fund

This fund is currently closed to new applications while we re-consider our corporate grants and funding process. We have a grants mailing list which will send out an email notification when it has reopened to new applications. To be added to our grants mailing list, please contact us at

We will fund:

  • Community led ideas and initiatives that will benefit East Devon’s communities.
  • We can give grants of between £300 and £500.
  • We would prefer to fund smaller projects, rather than be contributing a small percentage of big costly projects.

Projects must help achieve either or both of the following:

1. One or both of the following key priorities listed in our Council Plan:
- Better homes and communities for all.
- A greener East Devon.
Please see more details about what is included within each priority and so whether your application would be eligible.

2. One or more of the priorities / actions listed in our Poverty Strategy
