The Do It for East Yorkshire (DIFEY) community grant is for voluntary and community groups as well as town and parish councils in the East Riding. Awards can be between £1,500 and £5,000 per group - with up to £10k  for projects that have capital costs only

East Riding of Yorkshire Council recognises that the cost-of-living crisis is putting unforeseen pressures on residents and community groups across the county.

The DIFEY grants are awarded to support activity that will provide community activities to improve health and wellbeing, improve access to local resources & services and reduce social isolation. 

This fund will also support activity that will enhance pride of place to contribute to better use of community services and encourages pilot projects to trial their future potential as sustainable activities.

This fund is to help support new or additional activity rather than activity that already exists.
