Your Community Grants
Macclesfield Community Grants
The town council recognises the value and importance of community groups and activities within the town. Whether it is a local event for adults or children, providing support for people who might otherwise feel excluded or putting on a festival such as Barnaby, we want to help wherever we can.
Requests for grants up to £250 must be applied for using the small grants application form. Grants over £250 and up to £2,000 must be applied for using the large grants application form. Grant applications are considered at the next appropriate and available Finance Committee as scheduled and decisions are made according to the council’s scheme of delegation.
