Applying to NHDC for a Grant
NHDC award grants to local organisations. Applications in Knebworth are considered at the Southern Rural Committee, of which I am a member. The amount of funds available is limited, as would be expected, but suitable causes can obtain funding.
The NHDC Grants Policy is currently being reviewed. One of the proposals is to require grant applications to be made via its website. The relevant page can be reached here. This page may change if the draft policy is adopted, but not by much. Forms and guidance can be obtained there.
Of course there are many other sources of funding, from national charities, to very local ones, such as the Village Trust. The County Council also awards grants in some circumstances. Various national bodies, such as the Heritage Lottery Fund also may be able to help.
I have had a few suggestions for projects, the most recent of which is the provision of a defibrillator, available 24-7, somewhere in the centre of Knebworth. Maybe you have some other ideas.
