Our Grants Scheme is designed to support local community organisations, charities, Social Enterprises and Community Interest Companies delivering services, projects and events within Penrith.
We will consider one application per organisation each financial year (1st April to 31st March) but will not consider applications from individuals.
It is recommended that applicants thoroughly read the Council’s Grants Scheme before making an application and where necessary contact the Economic Development Officer for advice.
The Council will not fund salaries, hospitality, religious organisations (except for non-religious activities), core school expenditure or projects with party political links.

We would appreciate your feedback on the scheme and the forms, to help us improve and develop our service.
What to do if you cannot access parts of this page
We want to ensure that everyone can access our information and we are working to improve our website. The application forms for grants may not be accessible to screen readers as they contain tables with empty cells. Please contact us if you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read or in an alternative format.
We will consider your request and respond to you in ten working days.
