Community and Arts Grants

Exeter City Council: Review of Community and Arts Grants 

Update August 2019: Thank you to everyone that took the time and effort to take part in our extensive listening and consultation exercises which have really helped us to gain consensus on a common set of priorities and principles for the new Exeter Grant Programme.  

The reports arising from the consultation are available for you to download:


The new Exeter Grants Programme is an exciting and bold step forward for the Council in our endeavours to support community groups and organisations as they continue to work together on local projects that help make Exeter such a great place to live. The new programme and the Exeter City Fund will be launched later this year.
