Boston Town Area Committee Small Grants Scheme

Boston Town Area Committee (BTAC), which operates as a town council for Boston, has a small grant scheme to help worthwhile projects.

Formally-constituted town-based community groups and organisations can apply for up to £1,000 towards projects which have a benefit to the BTAC area and its residents.

Funds can be used for a wide range of purposes, from start-up costs to purchase of a range of goods and services.

Applications will be scored against criteria. Those which do not meet the funding threshold will not go before the committee.

For more information or an application pack contact Maddy Eyre, the scheme administrator, at Boston Borough Council, Municipal Buildings, West Street, Boston, PE21 8QR, call her on 01205 314340 or email

Projects which have received BTAC grants have included activities for children and young people, neighbourhood groups' community events, environmental enhancements such as a bike track for a playing field, refurbishing and renovating war memorials and equipment for sports groups.

For more information, see the bulletin article:

Application submissions:

There will be 3 application rounds in this financial year, with it increasing to quarterly for 2018/2019

Applications will be scored by a sub-committee to assess initial eligibility before being submitted to the committee proper.  All applicants will be notified as to whether their application has been successful in being presented to the committee for consideration.  In a change to the former process, applicants will not be expected to present their applications to the committee in person, the BTAC Grant Administrator will present the report and applicants will be notified of the decisions made following the meeting.

Please see below application round details  for 2017/2018 and deadline dates for application submission.

Applications will be scored and assessed 1 month before being submitted to the Committee for consideration and decision.
