Seaford Town Council was pleased to run its annual Community Grants Scheme from 3rd April to 31st May 2023.
Each year the Town Council extends the opportunity to local community groups, charities or voluntary organisations to apply for a financial grant from the Town Council’s grants pool to aid them in providing facilities and services for the people of Seaford.
The 2023/24 scheme is now closed with nineteen applications being received. The Finance & General Purposes Committee looked in depth at each application on its own merit and in line with the Council’s Grants Policy. The Council endeavoured to award as much of or the entire amount requested where the necessary criteria had been met, however has had to take in to account the budgetary constraints that has resulted in many applicants receiving less than the requested amount and in some cases, it was regretful that applicants had to be turned down.
A total budget of £25,000 was awarded to the various grant applicants all of which directly benefit the residents of Seaford and the Town itself. The list of the 2023/24 grants awarded can be found here.
The 2024/25 grants scheme is due to open in April next year.
