This fund has specific time-related criteria requiring prior contact with both the council and the relevant East Herts Councillor.

You need a crowdfunding project to apply for funding. Start or continue adding your project and, if eligible, you'll be prompted to apply.

Projects wishing to apply for this match fund must have obtained endorsement from their relevant East Herts Councillor and have had prior contact with the council.

If you have already started your crowdfunding and have not already made contact with EHC please look at the wider Hertfordshire County Council Community Innovation Fund.

The council seeks to support projects that build stronger, more connected, self-reliant communities, leading to improved health and wellbeing outcomes for residents in East Herts.
