BTAC Community Project Grants
Do you need help funding your community project? Well you may qualify for a BTAC grant if you are a community group or organisation based in the town.
Boston Town Area Committee (BTAC) operates as a town council for Boston. As such, it has a ‘Small’ grant scheme to help worthwhile projects.
Projects which have previously received BTAC grants have included activities for children and young people, neighbourhood groups’ community events, environmental enhancements (such as a bike track for a playing field), refurbishing and renovating war memorials and equipment for sports groups.
BTAC Small Grants Scheme
The Boston Town Area Committee Small Grant Scheme is now open for applications.
Are you a fully-constituted Boston-based community group or organisation working to deliver projects for the benefit of residents within any of the town centre wards of Boston? then you may qualify for a Boston Town Area Committee (BTAC) Small grant.
You can apply for up to £1,000 contribution towards a large project or to fund a project in its entirety, whether it is for venue hire, to purchase small items of equipment, to cover insurance costs or to produce publicity materials.
We are committed to working in partnership with local people to deliver the council’s overall priorities which are to:
- Secure better services for less money, and
- Share opportunities and responsibilities when possible
Organisation which have been funded in the last year include:
Forbes Road Bowls Club, Downs Syndrome Family Support Group, Singing for Fun, Centenary Methodist Church, First Boston Scouts, Willoughby Road Allotments, Boston in Bloom Partnership, Boston Community Transport, Crossroads Lunch Club and The Wednesday Club.
