Applying to us

When you can apply

The Hafren Dyfrdwy Community Fund has grants availableover two rounds of funding. Applications for the first round of funding are now closed but there will be another opportunity to apply to us next year, when round 2 opens for applications in March 2022.
Your project must start within 3 months of the grant offer date and be completed within 12 months of award date.

Each round of funding will only be open for a limited time, so please make sure you submit your application in time and only when you are ready to start your project. 

If your application is unsuccessful, you are welcome to reapply to us again for a future funding round with a different project.

We only reject applications with good reason so if you want to re-apply with a different project, please take the time to understand why your application was not successful. We really would not want to disappoint you again.
