What can I apply for?
Hastings Borough Council has an arts match funding scheme where grants of up to £1000 can be applied for as match for external funding bids (i.e. you have to be making an application to Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund, and so on). Information can be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2016-17 our investment of £10,000 helped to lever in £227,500 of additional funding for Hastings based projects.
East Sussex County Council manage a similar match funding scheme for the East Sussex Arts Partnership, and offer grants of up to £500 as match against Grants for the Arts bids. Visit the East Sussex County Council website for more information.
In Hastings, the Foreshore Trust has a small community grants scheme which will support arts and cultural projects.
