The aim of Selsey Town Council's bi-annual grant programme is to provide support to projects, groups and events which offer a clear and demonstrable benefit to the residents and town of Selsey. There are two grant funding streams - one to support projects or initiatives which directly benefit the Selsey community, whether they are run by local groups or larger national charities - this is the Community Grant Fund. The second, created in November 2019, is the Event Grant Fund and this is designed to support the development of community-led events. The supporting policies, award criteria and application forms can be found in the Downloadable Documents section below.

Selsey Town Council considers grant applications twice each year, subject to a maximum annual budget. The deadline for applications will be 25th February and 25th August each year. Applications are evaluated by the first meeting of the Finance & Administration Advisory Group following the deadline and their recommendations considered by Full Council. All awards are made at the discretion of Selsey Town Council and any decision made will be final.
