Dunstable CBC Councillors Support Good Causes

Community grants

Each Central Bedfordshire Councillor has had access to £2,000 from which they can allocate grants to local projects that demonstrate a community benefit. Councillors could also work together across a ward to combine their grants, if that’s what was most needed. Some wards have more needs or more groups or more organisations than others, so funds allocated across the authority area will vary.

In order to qualify for cultural, environmental, sporting or social projects, the applicants had to have match funding.
