Kent County Council: Village & Community Hall Grants

Community Buildings/Halls

Kent County Council offer grants of up to £50,000 for local communities to improve an existing hall or build a new hall.

A grant is conditional upon match funding.  We can offer a pound for every pound raised, up to 50% of eligible project costs.

Projects supported by the scheme include:

  • building an extension
  • new halls
  • upgrade of toilets
  • replacement windows and heating systems
  • improved insulation.

Grants are not provided for:

  • normal repairs or maintenance work
  • replacement of equipment
  • professional fees, surveys, reports and investigations.

Grants will be considered for work where deterioration would lead to the eventual closure of the hall.

The scheme is open to any village or community hall managed by an independent management committee set up in accordance with the ACRE Model Constitution.

All applicants must be of registered charitable status.  Halls owned or managed by a parish council or church authority are not eligible to apply.
