How to Apply



Please complete as many sections of the form as possible. Some of the questions may not be relevant to your organisation or may need further explanation. If so, applicants are encouraged to include any supporting information that will help to explain their application better and thus assist their application.

If there is insufficient space on any part of the application form, please indicate and attach a separate note.

When making your application, remember the Council will usually only consider requests for specific projects. Councillors may also only consider a grant which, in their opinion, is in the interests of, and will bring direct benefit to, the local area or some or all of its inhabitants, in a manner commensurate with the expenditure.

Grants are considered by the Finance Committee. The application must be with the Parish Clerk at least three weeks before the date of the committee meeting.

Dates of future meetings are available on the website meetings calendar or enquire with the parish office. If the application is incomplete and the committee require further information to reach a decision this could delay the decision by up to three months. Please ensure that you have answered all the questions and provided a copy of recent accounts.

Please return the form to: The Clerk, St Stephen Parish Council, the Parish Centre, Station Road, Bricket Wood, St Albans, AL2 3PJ, or you can email your application to:
