Bounce Back Grant Fund 2022/2023

We have launched a new grant scheme called the Bounce Back Fund, which is now open for applications.

The Bounce Back Fund is a £150,000 Hambleton District Council grants fund for capital costs to support infrastructure projects that drive economic recovery, help boost the local economy and benefit people who visit, live and/or work in Hambleton.


Eligible applications must be from either:

  • a not for profit group or organisation with a bank account and constitution


  • a Town or Parish Council.

The minimum grant available is £25,000 and the maximum grant available is £50,000 towards capital infrastructure projects located in:

  • Bedale
  • Easingwold
  • Great Ayton
  • Northallerton
  • Sowerby
  • Stokesley
  • Thirsk

The total amount requested from the Bounce Back Fund must not exceed 75% of the total estimated cost of the project, and evidence must be provided of the applicant’s 25% upon request. Other Hambleton District Council grants cannot be used as match funding.

Successful applicants must show how their project:

  • focusses on enabling towns to ‘bounce-back’ economically with respect to Covid-19;
  • contributes to economic sustainability;
  • demonstrates value for money.

Projects must be delivered between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023

All applicants must demonstrate that they have the support of one of their town’s Ward Members before submitting a Bounce Back Fund application. Information about Ward Members can be found here:
