TTTV Community Grants Scheme

TTTV Community Grants Scheme

Transforming the Trent Valley LPS are pleased to launch our Community Grants scheme!

We are encouraging community groups to plan and deliver projects within the TTTV scheme area which will benefit the natural, cultural and built heritage of the area. These projects might include building a wildlife area in a school garden, creating an arts trail along the River Trent, restoring part of a historic building or putting on an event to enable children to explore the great outdoors.

This project allows community groups to apply for up to £2000 from the TTTV scheme, which can be used for up to 50% of the total project costs (eg you might apply for £1500 as part of a £3000 project).
