Funding for Community Projects in West Lindsey
Community Lincs is now administering two new grant schemes on behalf of West Lindsey District Council.
A small grant scheme offering grants of between £50 and £500 covering everyday project costs but also costs associated with training, feasibility studies, and the development and support of volunteers.
A large grant scheme supporting capital projects such as community facilities, sport recreational and heritage projects and projects that will improve tourism or the environment. You can apply for between £500 and £8000.
Detailed Guidance Notes along with key dates for submitting applications are available for both schemes through the district council website:
We would recommend reading the guidance notes carefully for more information before applying.

Top Ten Tips
- Check that you are eligible for the funding programme you’re planning to apply to.
- Thoroughly read the application pack and guidance notes.
- Use the support offered by the grants team if you are unsure about the application form and how to answer the questions
- Enclose all required supporting documents with your application, and make sure they all have the group’s name on them and they are up to date.
- If we require quotes then please send them and not links to websites.
- Prove that there is a concrete need/demand for the project. State clearly what you need the funding for, what you want to do and how you will spend the money.
- Make sure your figures add up
- Get someone to read the application before you submit it.
- Keep a copy of the application form so that you can refer to it if needed.
- Allow plenty of time from submitting your application to when you propose to start your project/work. At least two months for the small community grants programme. The large programme has only two rounds a year
