The City of Ely Council allocates a sum of money each year, which can be applied for by voluntary/charitable groups and local organisations, not for profit organisations or community interest companies, but not from individuals. These grants are provided under Local Government powers, one of which is the Local Government Act 1972, Section 137. The group/organisation must benefit the parishioners of the City of Ely and the project/activities should take place within the parish of Ely, to allow funding to be considered. The parish of Ely comprises of Ely and the villages of Prickwillow, Stuntney, Chettisham, Queen Adelaise and Shippea Hill.

Please note that Local Government Regulations do not permit the award of grants to individuals.  Grants will not be awarded to cover staff salaries.

If you feel your organisation qualifies for a grant, the application form will be available to download here when the process for 2023/24 begins.



The closing date for applications has been extended to 10.00am on the 28th September 2023.
