Member locality budget
Are you a member of a local community group or charity which would benefit from a funding boost? If so, help could be close at hand in the shape of the Locality Budget scheme from Hertfordshire County Council.
Each of our 77 county council members has a £10,000 Locality Budget to spend on worthwhile projects in their community that promote social, economic or environmental wellbeing.
Requesting a Locality Budget grant
Requesting a grant is very straightforward. You are encouraged to discuss your proposal with your local member before completing your application.
Once submitted, your application will be reviewed by your local member who will recommend whether the grant should be awarded. A formal decision will then be made by the council’s chief legal officer and you will be notified as to whether or not your request has been successful in writing or by email.
Details of successful and unsuccessful applications are published on the Details page of each County Councillor's website. To find out how to contact your local county councillor, enter your postcode into the ‘Go Local’ box on the HertsDirect homepage or via the Your Community pages. You can then access a wealth of information about what’s going on locally and can use the 'Your representatives' tab to access your county councillor's contact details.
You should contact your County Councillor to discuss your project and the funding required before filling in the online grant request form. If you have any difficulties completing this form, please contact:
