Have you got a great Idea for your community?
Each year Trafford Housing Trust Community Panels administer £807,000 of funding grants on behalf of the Trust's Board.
Constituted groups who have a project that will benefit their community are encouraged to apply for this funding.
In order to qualify you must satisfy the vision of the Panel you are applying to.
The Community Panels will now accept funding applications all year round. However, they will be holding 3-4 funding decision sessions annually and we will inform you of when they are coming up.
The application process has changed. There are now two application forms, one for micro grants and one for larger grants. Please refer to the forms below and use the relevant form to apply for funding.
All applications received before 12am Friday 9th September 2016 will be considered within the Autumn 2016 Funding Panel sessions. Those applications submitted after this date will be recorded and considered during the next Panel meetings in Spring 2017
Please bear in mind that only one type of grant is available per group. However, you can apply to more than one panel.
If successful in securing funding, micro grant payments will be processed before Christmas. However, for larger grants we cannot guarantee payment before Christmas.
