Chelmsford City Council

Grants and schemes

We offer two community grant schemes: The Corporate Aid Scheme and the Equality and Diversity Grant.  Both schemes are open to non-profit making groups who work in Chelmsford or for the benefit of its residents.

Both schemes closed at 4.30pm on Wednesday 31 October 2018.

If you have applied, we will let you know the outcome of your application by the end of January 2019. If you are successful, we will award your grant in April 2019.

We will award funding to groups who can:

  • support Chelmsford’s most vulnerable residents
  • nurture the natural environment in and around our City
  • promote healthier and more active lives
  • enable Chelmsford to be socially inclusive

When the scheme is open, you can apply for a grant of up to £10,000. However, we more commonly award grants of between £500 and £5,000.
