Doing What Matters – New Grants Available

by Jackie Hook on 7 May, 2019

Devon County Council has launched a new set of Community Grants which aim:

  • To help local people connect with each other and their wider community.
  • To shift more control of local decisions to communities.
  • To challenge inequality where it exists for people and communities.
  • To do things differently in communities.

Each year the council will highlight a key local priority, around which bids will be particularly welcome.

This year bids to understand and address loneliness and isolation across generations and communities in Devon will be prioritised (2019-2020).

  • The Doing What Matters Grants Fund has a total revenue grant fund for 2019-20 of £300k.
  • Maximum grant award: £20,000 per non-repeatable project applications.
  • Minimum grant award: £5,000.
  • Intervention rate: 75%, therefore, match-funding required minimum 25% of project costs.

Please get in touch if you would like more information.
