Essex Small Grants

Thank you to everyone who attended our recent Essex Small Grants Advisory Surgery in Basildon. Over the past 6 years ECDP has been involved in supporting 27 applications to the fund, engaging 47,000 people in diverse cultural activity bringing £63,000 to the Essex economy.

“Our partnership with ECDP has resulted in some exciting, rewarding and high-profile projects from diverse communities in Essex. We are looking forward to seeing many new applications come forward in the next round of Essex Small Grants”
– Andrew Ward, Cultural Development Officer, Essex County Council

The Culture in Essex Small Grants Scheme is funded and run by Essex County Council, offering one-off project support to arts and culture projects within Essex (excluding Southend and Thurrock).

Deadlines fall on the 31 March and 31 October each year and awards of up to £2,500 are offered to projects which meet the schemes criteria. For more information you can download the guidance notes and application form.

We will be arranging further grants surgeries for applications to the Small Grants scheme in the coming months. If you would like to receive news of these events please sign up to our monthly newsletter to keep up to date with upcoming opportunities.
