Grants to support those working to combat COVID-19

The Community Grants fund has now been expanded for those who need resources to combat Covid-19.

Grants of up to £1 200 are available to assist organisations and individuals supporting Hertford residents during this difficult time.

If you are working to support residents within the area covered by Hertford Town Council (which includes Hertingfordbury) or for organisations who are dealing with the impact of Covid 19 in the Hertford area we would love to hear from you.
