The Micro Grant programme offers awards between £50-£2,500. It is designed to be simple and light touch to enable residents and local community groups to easily access small amounts of funding to implement their ideas. We expect most activities/events will happen at a very local level on specific streets or estates, or within a specific community of interest such as mums with pre-school children.
