Community Investment Grants

Community Investment Grants

Our grants fund improvements which benefit not only tenants but the wider community too.

Havebury has an annual budget to invest in community projects. If you have a project that would benefit from funding, email to request an application pack. You can also discuss your idea with our admin team by calling 0300 3300 900.

Our criteria for funding:

  1. Your project must be for the benefit of the community on a not-for-profit basis
  2. It must identify a specific need
  3. It needs to be within five miles of a Havebury development
  4. You will need to provide a detailed financial plan
  • How much money can I request for my project?

    There is no minimum or maximum sum for which you can apply. However, we are unable to fund the entire cost of a project. Our panel wants to see that you have raised some money yourself, and that you have made applications to other funding sources where possible.

    As a guide, a typical application has a project total of between £4,000 and £5,000, and the sum applied for would be between £1,500 and £2,500. On occasions, we have been one of up to 16 funders for big projects. On others, we have been the sole external funder for a small project.

  • Can we apply again if we have already had a grant?

    Yes. If your project is different to the previous one, and you fit our criteria above, then you can apply for a grant. The only condition we may make is that other applications are assessed ahead of yours.
