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 hyperlinks are at the bottom of this page. These documents show the priorities for each Panel's funding. Please download and read the vision for your area. You will be asked to demonstrate how you meet the vision in your application form.
The Community Panels will accept funding applications all year round. However, they operate a number of Funding Panel sessions throughout the year to consider those applications received.
All applications received before 9am Monday 23rd January 2017 will be considered within the Spring 2017 Funding Panel sessions. Those applications received after this date will be recorded and considered during the next funding round (dates to be confirmed).
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.
If you are applying for funding below £500 you can download the Community Panel Micro Grants Application Form by clicking here.

Please bear in mind that only one type of grant is available per group. However, you can apply to more than one panel.
