Cherwell District Council – Capital Grant Fund open for applications

A new grant is available! The Community Infrastructure Capital Grant Fund (CICGF) 

The CICGF funding could be toward a small or medium sized project/s that will see an improvement to buildings e.g. fittings – floor/wall covering/kitchen/bathrooms (improvements e.g. accessible facilities)/staging within the Cherwell area.

Examples only – (lots more ideas considered):

  • Extension of Kitchen facilities to upgrade to more commercial kitchen
  • Toward smaller building extensions (grant pot is too small to accommodate multiple projects of high value and you bid must be co-funded)
  • Floor covering upgrade (to allow more comfort to toddler groups or facilitate exercise)
  • Bathroom facilities to upgrade
  • Refit to upgrade/improve
  • Capital costs only. You should either own the building or have a leasehold of at least 5 years (21 years for applications above £1000 and below £20, 000)
  • 50% of total project (so you would need the other half from funds or other sources)

Please have a look through the guidance and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask or contact
