Village Halls Grant

It is time for village halls to submit their applications for grants again. The closing date is December 31, 2015. Funding is available up to £1000. Halls are able to apply for up to 30 per cent of their annual running costs and groups need to meet the following criteria:

  • Halls must be independently owned or leased on a secure and long-term basis to the community
  • The applicant must be a properly constituted, non-profit-making organisation which exists for public benefit
  • The facilities must be available, within reason, to all members of the community
  • Halls must be run and managed by an elected, representative committee from the community

Priority will be given to halls serving communities with a population of less than 3000. Unless there are exceptional circumstances, only one hall in each community will be supported. Ward managers will nominate the facility they wish to support where there is more than one hall serving the community.For an application form, go to highland.gov.uk/directory_record/196481/village_halls_grant
