We are particularly interested in supporting local green initiatives and projects in line with the council’s policy on the climate emergency.
Grants available from other town and parish councils
Grants awarded by the Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council must benefit the town or its residents. If your project benefits the town and/or residents but also benefits other parishes or people from outside of Abingdon then you may also wish to apply for grant funds from other parishes. Not all parishes have funds available and like Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council they will need to see that your project benefits the parish and/or its residents.
