Community Infrastructure Levy funding

Community Infrastructure Levy funding

Apply now for funding from the Community Infrastructure levy


Do you know of any local charities or community groups which require a little extra money? Groups and charities can now apply for up to £15,000 of funding to help with one off projects, sustainable or environmental projects or to help to fund maintenance and repairs or support local services. Grants for funding are not limited to one per organisation; multiple applications can be submitted.


Organisations will need to submit their applications as soon as possible as funding available is limited.


The funding will be awarded to projects, services and activities that improve the overall quality of life and wellbeing of residents in the Chesterfield Borough. More information on this can be found in the Council plan.
