The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Community Grants Scheme launched by Harrogate Borough Council

The Platinum Jubilee in 2022 will mark seventy years of Her Majesty’s reign. An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022, will provide an opportunity for communities throughout the United Kingdom, Commonwealth and the world to come together to celebrate this historic milestone.

Harrogate Borough Council has made available  a funding pot of £15,000. Community groups and organisations can apply for grants of between £200 to £1,000 for events and activities taking place over the Jubilee bank holiday and up to £2,000 for legacy projects that must be completed by 30 September 2022. Applicants must show a clear link to the celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee in terms of theme and activity planning. Harrogate Borough Council is hoping that local community groups and organisations will join in with the festivities and use this grant funding to bring local communities and individuals together to celebrate The Queen’s Jubilee.

The Platinum Jubilee Community Grants Fund is now open.  Guidance notes and the online application form can be found at Platinum Jubilee community grants – Harrogate Borough Council The closing date for all applications is noon on Friday 8th April 2022 and applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application  on the week commencing 25th April 2022.
