Dumfries and Galloway Council provides grant funding to local groups or individuals through its Area Committee Discretionary Grants.

Applications are accepted throughout the year but are only considered quarterly. Area Committees will consider the first round of applications in March 2017. Applications for this round must be submitted on or before 5pm on Friday 6 January 2017.

Only applications that are ‘complete’ at the closing date above will be considered in March. If you wish to apply for funding, please submit your application ahead of the closing date. Applications which are not complete by the deadline may not be considered until June/July 2017 at the earliest. Area Committees will not generally consider funding events which have already taken place or projects which have started so if you are applying for funding for an event in April to June it is important you apply before this deadline.

Sports funding applications for 2017/2018 may be submitted from March next year. There is no closing date and applications are considered each month until funds are fully committed.

Please be sure you have read the relevant criteria when writing your application.

If you need advice or support in completing your application please email grantapplications@dumgal.gov.uk
