community grants - how to apply

To access this funding, you must be either a small organisation (in that you employ fewer than 49 full-time equivalent staff and have an annual turnover equal to or under EUR 10 million or a balance sheet equal to or below EUR 10 million) or a third sector organisation which operates within the Third Sector (meaning the part of an economy or society comprising non-governmental and non-profit making organisations or associations including charities, voluntary and community groups).


Grant Application Process

Petroc has developed a two-stage application process and will offer training and guidance to any organisations who wish to submit an application.

Stage 1 Application

This is used to determine your organisation's eligibility. Once eligibility is confirmed by Petroc you can start your Stage 2 Application.

Stage 2 Application 

This is where you tell us the details of your project proposal. This is submitted to a panel to decide whether it can be funded. The panel will consist of one LEP member, one Petroc member of staff (not a member of the Projects team) and one member from your local area.
