Horwich Town Council Grant Awards

Horwich Town Council recognises that the Covid-19 pandemic has, and continues to impact on many voluntary organisations and voluntary groups in Horwich as elsewhere.

In these unpresented times plans have been disrupted, events cancelled and income reduced due to the cancellation of so many fund-raising activities over the past year.

As usual the Town Council will be awarding its final round of grant funding for the current financial year to local voluntary and community organisations that are located in, and serve the residents of the Parish.

Closing date for applications is 28 February 2021 for consideration in March 2021. Grants are usually in the region of £300 but due to the exceptional circumstances, requests for larger amounts up to a maximum of £500 will now be considered.

Application forms are available by emailing: townclerk@horwich.gov.uk or by downloading the form below.

The Town Council hopes that as many eligible groups and organisations as possible will take this opportunity to apply for funding to enable them to continue their events and activities in 2021 and beyond when restrictions are eased and life can return to normal.
