The Amity Allotment Fund will open with £50,000 to encourage the expansion of existing allotments or to establish new sites throughout Kent and Medway.
Grants of up to £7,500 are available to cover start-up costs for new allotments or ongoing expenses for more established sites. Applications for funding would be considered for legal, or insurance costs, site purchase or rent costs, as well as the purchase of seeds, plants, tools, sheds, benches, fencing, water tanks, or communal tools.
To meet the Kent Community Foundation funding criteria, allotments wishing to apply should be properly established as a community resource, with a governing document, trustees or a management committee, and a named bank account and the grants team may wish to make a site visit.
Decisions will be made all year round.
Applications to be made through the Environmental Theme.
There’s lots of information on the National Allotment Society website that may be useful.
Open to those on the Annual Application route.
