Corby Borough Council has set up an Emergency Community Grants Scheme to help support local charities, community groups and organisations who are actively supporting our most vulnerable residents during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The scheme allows those eligible to apply for grants of up to £250 and aims to help and assist local organisations in supporting the elderly and vulnerable in these unprecedented times.

Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Community, Cllr John McGhee, said: “In these difficult times, it is welcome news that we are in a position to be able to assist organisations in helping our most vulnerable residents. At a time like this, it is so important that we all work together so I’m pleased this scheme is now live and open for applicants to apply. If you think you are eligible for this grant, please do check and send us your application as soon as possible. Let’s get out there and do our bit for the community to the best of our ability.”

To find out if you are eligible, visit the council's website to see the criteria, along with further details and an online application form.

Once an application has been submitted, it will be checked as soon as possible. Corby Borough Council may contact the applicant for further information. If successful, applicants will need to sign a condition of grant and complete a creditor request form to release payment.
