Craven District Council Ward Member Grants

What are Ward Member Grants?
Ward Members budgets, allow every district councillor to respond to local needs by recommending the allocation of small amounts of money to support projects or activities that benefit the communities they represent.
Ward budgets can fund projects within one ward or be used to fund joint projects between two or more wards, providing each ward has identified the same issue and there are clear benefits for the residents in each ward.
