Applications are now open for the small grants element of the Essex Public Health Accelerator Bids (PHAB) programme.

PHAB is a new £7.5 million grant programme. Grants are available to voluntary groups, charities, NHS bodies, councils, schools and more.

Organisations can now apply for a small grant between £500 and £15,000. These will be awarded to projects that improve the health of residents across Essex. Project should align with the priorities in the new Essex Wellbeing, Public Health and Communities Business Plan

There is no deadline to submit a small grant application. This may change depending on the volume of small grant applications received.

The major grants element of PHAB was launched during the summer, attracting interest from 75 organisations across Essex. A number of these will now go through to submit a second stage application. The first major grants will be awarded in November. The second round of the PHAB major grants scheme opens on Monday 6 November and closes on Friday 1 December.
