Each councillor gets a budget to spend on projects in their area.
Each councillor gets £10,000 a year to spend on local projects that promote the social, economic or environmental wellbeing of their local area.
Grants can be given for anything, as long as it's legal and doesn't go against a county council policy.
Once you've contacted your county councillor, you can apply for a grant online.
When your councillor has received your application they will recommend whether a grant should be awarded. You'll be informed if your request has been successful by email.
