Groups of local residents or voluntary groups can apply to our area committees for funding for projects, activities or services.
The priorities for Area Committee Community Grants specifically focus on reducing social and economic inequality for disadvantaged residents. Projects or activities should benefit a specific community or people living in a particular area.
Councillors decide on grant applications once per year, at an area committee meeting in the spring. Our ward map can help you work out which area committee your group should apply to.
The application process for the 2022/23 round of area committee funding is now open. The closing dates for completed applications are:
- East area: 8 February 2022
- North area: 25 January 2022
- South area: 28 January 2022
- West/Central area: 1 February 2022
Read the application information document to find out whether your group or activity is eligible, and for guidance on how to apply.

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee event funding
We are providing grants of up to £500 for events and activities in Cambridge that will commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
If you are considering running such an event and are seeking funding, read the application information document and contact us to request an application form.
The closing dates for applications are the same as for Area Committee Community Grants.
Most of this funding has been allocated but there is a small amount still available. If you think your group and activity might be eligible for a small bid then contact us to discuss your activity.
