The Severn Trent Community Fund re-opened for ordinary applications on 1 June, after focusing on the COVID-19 response. The Fund plans to give away £10million over the next five years. To be eligible for a grant from the Severn Trent Community Fund, your organisation must be a registered not for profit, and the project you would like funding for must benefit Severn Trent customers.
The programme distributes grants of £2,000 to £250,000 for local initiatives that meet the following aims:
- People - Projects that facilitate healthier lifestyles and skills development
- Place - Projects that help create better places to live in and use
- Environment - Projects that facilitate a healthier natural environment, greater access to that environment or support the preservation of water
To apply for more than £10,000 you must be a registered charity or a business registered with Companies House, or a local authority or parish council.
Severn Trent is aware that COVID-19 has had a big impact on our daily lives and how we can all operate in the foreseeable future, so they will be looking for applications to detail how you plan to adapt to the latest government guidelines.
This is a rolling programme and Severn Trent holds quarterly panels to review applications - in March, June, September and December. For your application to be reviewed at the September 2020 panel, you will need to submit by mid-August.
Before applying, please ensure you read all of the available information on the website.
