The Town Council has a fund to give grants to charitable, voluntary and public sector organisations. This is to support the work carried out by groups who undertake activities that benefit Louth residents.
The types of organisation that can apply for grants, are for example:
- Charitable organisations
- Pre-school playgroups
- Youth clubs
- Sports clubs
- Arts groups
- Advice organisations
The fund is intended for projects that will benefit Louth residents as a whole, and so there are some cases where we are not able to provide grants. These include general appeals (e.g., national/international disasters), national organisations without a locally-based group, individuals (e.g., sponsorship for individual sportsmen and women).
The Town Council gives variable grants, considering each application on its merits, most grants are for relatively small amounts.
If you think you might qualify for a grant, you should obtain a Grant Application form which will be available from September 2019.
