HHTC Cost of Living Crisis Emergency Grants

Cost-of-Living emergency grants to fund gaps in services

Haywards Heath Town Council announced that it is in a position to award Cost of Living Crisis emergency grants to fund gaps in service for groups and organisations who may be facing shortfalls or breaks in their services during these very difficult times.

Reacting to this crisis to help its community, the Town Council, as agreed by its Policy and Finance Committee, has set aside £25,000 for worthy projects to be brought forward over the coming months.

Grants will be awarded to fund assistance with the running of the Warm Spaces scheme, projects that will help to address cost of living needs, as well as other winter assistance plans. Level of funding is negotiable and applications are welcome from constituted groups/organisation that help residents, which are open to everyone in the community.

Unfortunately, the Town Council is not able to award grants to individuals.

Grants set up to help charities, community and voluntary organisations

Cllr Mike Pulfer, Haywards Heath Town Council Leader, comments: “We set up this grants programme to help charities, community and voluntary organisations continue to deliver projects and activities that will help ease the impacts of the cost of living for residents and to support community groups and organisations that are providing Warm Spaces for residents this Winter.

“The Council is keen to make sure that as many residents as possible are supported as we endure the cost-of-living crisis over the winter period and we will be announcing a number of other initiatives soon.”

Groups and organisations wishing to apply for the Cost-of-Living Crisis Emergency Grants should contact Imogen Wilson at Haywards Heath Town Council at [email protected] or telephone 01444 455694
