The scheme is operated using BTAC’s Community Grants Policy with a scoring matrix based on the requirements of the Committee that it be consistent with BTAC’s terms of reference; easy to understand; flexible and inclusive; and include a ‘pre-assessment’ process for officers with only those applications scoring above a defined threshold to be considered by a Working Group of Members to make recommendations back to the Committee.

Are you a fully-constituted Boston-based community group or organisation working to deliver projects for the benefit of residents within any of the town centre wards of Boston?  then you may qualify for a Boston Town Area Committee (BTAC) Small grant.

You can apply for up to £1,000 contribution towards a large project or to fund a project in its entirety, whether it is for venue hire, to purchase small items of equipment, to cover insurance costs or to produce publicity materials. For full guidelines and a copy of the BTAC Small Grant Scheme area of eligibility please click on the document links below.
