Grants and funding from Lincolnshire County Council

Grants and funding can be very important when delivering everything from community projects to new business ventures.

Whilst grants should not be the only option you consider to fund a project or piece of work, they can form part of your wider income and provide a vital boost to many projects.

Lincolnshire County Council wants to help organisations find that vital source of grant funding. Grants from local, regional and national sources can all contribute to making Lincolnshire a more vibrant, prosperous and active county to live and work in.

You can access funding services from Lincolnshire County Council below. These include the Lincolnshire Funding Portal, GRANTnet Business, and the Really Useful Stuff Handbook.

How can the LRO help you apply for grants and funding?

The LRO publishes datasets and reports that could provide valuable evidence to support your funding applications. Once you have identified a suitable source of funding you can use the data and information available on the LRO to support your application.

Any application is likely to score much higher if you have included factual data evidence such as accurate population figures or deprivation figures.

Click on the Themes menu at the top of the page to begin exploring the LRO data that could make the difference in your funding application.
