Lewes District Council Community Grants Programme

Lewes District Council recognises the immense contribution that voluntary organisations and community groups make to the district, and has set aside an annual budget to support such activities in-line with council priorities, providing a local response to local need.

The community grants programme focuses on two key areas in-line with the Community Grants Policy and the Lewes District Council Corporate Plan:

  • Category 1: Cost of Living
  • Category 2: Equality and Inclusion

Applicants can apply under one of these two categories. Please read the Community Grants Brochure before applying.
