Community Grant Initiative

We are here to help your community prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies and major incidents.

The Community Grant Initiative will provide communities across West Yorkshire with £50,000 of funding for projects, which will help to boost resilience and preparedness in the region.

Whether for flood prevention and protection, essential communication devices or emergency response equipment, our aim is to enable more to be done at a local level by providing small, one-off grants where communities need it most.

We will be awarding amounts of up to £5000 to community groups and voluntary organisations for small community initiatives and projects, which will provide a direct benefit to local communities.

This initiative is open to all, but we would particularly welcome applications from community and voluntary groups working in more deprived communities and/or areas in which there are clear and present risks.

The first round of funding has now closed. Another funding round will open later in the year. Please check back here for details.

The application form is also available in Microsoft Word and can be downloaded here. If you have any issues accessing these documents, please contact wyrf@westyorkshire.police.uk
