Craven District Council Ward Member Grants

Craven District Council is launching a new community grant scheme - Ward Member Grants

Ward member grants thumbnail

The council has a long-standing commitment to empowering people and organisations to do more to help communities throughout Craven.

Councillor Richard Foster, Leader of the council, gave a commitment to introduce Ward Member budgets, allowing every district councillor to respond to local needs by recommending the allocation of small amounts of money to support projects or activities that benefit the communities they represent.

A pilot scheme has now been launched with each councillor having £1,000 to give out to community projects in their ward.

Ward budgets can also be used to fund joint projects between two or more wards, providing each ward has identified the same issue and there are clear benefits for the residents in each ward.
