Applications for Community Led Local Development (CLLD) Small Grants funding
Open all

The Community Led Local Development (CLLD) Small Grants Programme is currently open and running across 11 wards of Luton, it's funded by Luton Council, London Luton Airport, Beds and Luton Community Foundation and ESF CLLD.

It has replaced the previous fund known as Your Say Your Way - Community Led Local Development (YSYW - CLLD), it aims to involve local people from across the whole community in influencing the decisions affecting their neighbourhoods.

CLLD is part of this process and brings a local funding opportunity for grassroots community projects to your wards to develop targeted projects.

As a resident, the CLLD Small Grants Programme funding opportunity enables you to decide on how funding for community projects should be spent in your local area, you can do this by voting directly at Decision Days.

If you are part of a community group or local organisation and you have an idea for a project to improve your ward, you are able to apply for funding - if it meets funders’ criteria and other residents like the project and vote for it, then you could get funding to support your idea.

The following are the eligible CLLD wards:

  1. Biscot
  2. Crawley
  3. Dallow
  4. Farley
  5. High Town
  6. Leagrave
  7. Lewsey
