What is The King’s Coronation Community Fund?

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has established a new small grant fund to support communities across the East Riding which are planning to organise celebratory activities on or around the Coronation of King Charles III taking place on Saturday, 6 May 2023.

Who is eligible to apply for The King’s Coronation Community Fund?

Applicants to the fund must either be a parish council or a town council based in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Parish and town councils may apply in partnership with other groups or organisations (for example, schools, village hall associations) as long as the parish or town council is the lead applicant. Parish and town councils are encouraged to disseminate details of the fund and liaise with other interested groups or organisations within their communities before submitting an application.

What will The King’s Coronation Community Fund support?

The Fund will be available to help with the costs of appropriate related activities (for example, community events, street decorations, themed artwork, commemorative benches and plaques etc). Applicants can apply for a maximum of £500 and a minimum of £100 per project. Successful projects must be directly related to The King's Coronation and demonstrate appropriate community benefit and/or community input. It is anticipated that the fund will only support one application in each parish and town council area, subject to the availability of unallocated grant funds.

How do I apply for The King’s Coronation Community Fund?

Applications to the fund open on Wednesday, 1 February 2023 and should be submitted on an online application form within the council's Flexi-Grant system.
