Town and Parish Fund

There's over £50,000 grant funding available to help town and parish councils work more closely for the benefit of their local communities.

Devon County Council and Torridge District Council have set up a joint Town and Parish (TAP) Fund to encourage parishes to work more closely together.  Grants may be for capital or revenue costs, or for a new project or service.  Registered charities, social enterprises, voluntary and not-for-profit community groups are also encouraged to apply, through their town or parish council.

The fund was launched by Devon County Council and is managed locally by Torridge.  DCC is providing one pound for every elector in the district and Torridge is topping up this amount by 10 pence per elector, bringing the total fund to £57,435 for 2017/18.

Application forms and criteria information are given below.
