To help groups in Watford continue to support individuals and families suffering from food poverty, we are delighted that Watford Borough Council has secured £40,000 from Hertfordshire County Council as part of the Household Support Grant. This funding is to provide local organisations with financial support to allow them to continue to support individuals/families in Watford with food.  A maximum of £5,000 is available per organization.  

Applications for funding opens on Monday 31st July 2023 at 9am and will close at 11:59pm on Sunday 20th August 2023.  Applications will then be considered by W3RT in the week commencing the 21th August  2023 and sent to Watford Borough Council for approval.  Once approved, funds will be transferred within three working days.   

For further information about the Household Support Grant, a copy of the guidance notes can be found here and the application form can be found here.
