The Small Grant Scheme is focused on skills and qualifications, with the aim of kick-starting projects, businesses and start-ups, and helping widen individuals’ job opportunities.
Our first round ran from 19 August to Monday 28 September 2020.
The Small Grant Scheme focuses on projects that will create opportunities in employment and learning; in arts, culture, innovation and creative place-making; in entrepreneurship; and in resilience and COVID-19 recovery – within the four boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. Proposals from individuals, groups and organisations are all welcome.
The Small Grant Scheme aims to:
Grow new ideas
Encourage business start-ups and new community projects

Develop existing projects and businesses
Help people gain a qualification, skill or training that leads to improved prospects

Counteract the impacts of COVID-19, and support resilience.
The Small Grant Scheme will act as a fast-moving catalyst to help bring new ideas, projects and opportunities to life, within the arts, culture, innovation and creative place-making sectors.
