2023/24 S106 round for public art grants
Grant applications are invited from community groups working with an artist to produce local public art projects. Grants of up to £15,000 or £30,000 are on offer, depending on local funding availability.
We particularly encourage applications in this round from Abbey, Coleridge, East and West Chesterton (combined), Petersfield, Romsey and Queen Edith’s wards.

Please note that the deadline has been extended. The application round now closes at the end of Sunday 28 January 2024.
2023 S106 round for community and sports facilities
The second application round for S106 funding for small improvements to community and sports facilities in Cambridge closed at the end of October 2023. Applications received are now being assessed against the selection criteria.
Recommendations for S106 funding are due to be reported to the relevant Council committee in January 2024. See 2023 S106 funding round guidance for community and sports grants. [PDF, 0.3MB]
Last summer, we ran a first application round offering small grants for equipment and storage improvements at local community and sports facilities that could be delivered by April 2024.
Nine eligible proposals (totalling around £125,000) were recommended for S106 funding in a report to the Environment and Community Scrutiny Committee on 5 October 2023. The Executive Council approved all the recommendations in the report.
2023/24 S106 round for play areas and open spaces
As the remaining generic S106 funds for play area and open space improvements are now available only in particular parts of the city, the development of proposals for the use of these S106 contribution types will focus on discussions with councillors.
