Who Can Apply

Our grants are open to all Letchworth Garden City individuals, clubs, organisations (including the voluntary, not-for-profit and statutory sectors) and charities with a branch or office in the town.

Equally, if you are an organisation based outside Letchworth Garden City you may qualify if you can demonstrate there is a clearly identified need for your programme or activity within Letchworth Garden City.

Things to consider when applying which would invalidate your application:

  • Your project or activity has already started before the committee considers your application;
  • Your application includes VAT in the total amount requested and you can claim it back;
  • It is for political, religious or trade union organisations, other than projects for church halls that can demonstrate a wider community use, (i.e. they are already home to and available for hire by community groups outside the church’s organisation – or for elderly and retirement clubs;
  • There is a direct benefit for an individual school. However, we welcome educational applications that are collaborative projects, targeted to benefit Pre-School, Primary, Secondary or Higher Education

Students, please note: we provide an annual grant to Letchworth Civic Trust who support all Letchworth students (aged 18+) in any form of Higher and Further Education, including apprenticeships.
