Community Recovery Grants Scheme

The Community Recovery Grants scheme is now open for applications from groups who work with and support communities in Staffordshire from a new County Council fund.

Staffordshire County Council is keen to support the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Staffordshire by providing a range of one-off grants to help them recover following the pandemic and with the challenges of the rising cost of living. The funding will help organisations adapt to new ways of working, sustain existing activities and support residents with cost of living pressures. Grants of between £500 and £5,000 are available.

The County Council is working with the Community Foundation for Staffordshire who are managing grant applications and distribution. Grants will be awarded throughout October, November and December 2022 on a first come first served basis. All grants will be fully distributed by December 2022 and recipients will need to spend the award by 31st March 2023.
