Town Centre Action Grants

Swale Borough Council is once again making grants of up to £5,000 available to support activities to improve local town centers.
The council is reopening its Town Centre Action Grant (TAG) scheme, which helps boost the borough’s towns of Sittingbourne and Sheerness, as well as the smaller historic centers of Milton Regis and Queenborough.

The council wants interested groups to come together to develop coordinated action plans and projects for the towns, with grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 to schemes that focus on:

- Local arts, cultural, heritage and creative events and activities in and around the town centers that create interest and promote footfall and usage.
- Promotional campaigns to encourage visits and people to explore the town centers, increasing interest and footfall.
- Projects that enhance the existing cultural, historic & heritage offer, helping re-enforce a sense of place and encourage visitors.

The deadline for applications to this second round of funding will be Monday 27 November 2023.
