Coronavirus update

During this period of uncertainty, we have taken the difficult decision to close the process for applying for the following grants:

  • Arts Development Grants
  • Community Forum Grants

Once the current COVID-19 situation has stabilised, we will revisit the grants available and may revise criteria for applications to direct funding to address the consequences of the coronavirus emergency.

Grants for you

Community grants

Warwick District Council runs a number of grants schemes available to local community and voluntary sector groups. The aim of these grants is to support projects that will enhance the health and wellbeing and quality of life of the residents of Warwick District.

Arts grants

Visit the arts grants page for details of available grants.

Community forum grants

There are 7 community forums in Warwick district. Each forum has money to spend on areas of work which support local need.

Rural/Urban improvement grants scheme

This scheme gives grants to locally led and run, not-for-profit, community organisations towards capital projects which make use of volunteer labour within the Warwick District area.

Please note that the 2022/23 RUCIS budget has been spent therefore, unfortunately, the scheme is closed to applications; it will re-open again when the budget is replenished on 1st April 2023 for the 2023/24 financial year.
