Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Grants | Sandwell Council

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Grants

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge which can be levied by local authorities on new building developments in the area.  In Sandwell 15% of these funds can be spent in the local community.  CIL Grants of up to £5,000 are available to Community Groups to enhance their work and can be spent on capital costs such as sports equipment, furniture, some renovations or IT equipment.  

To find out if your group is eligible to apply and to see the criteria for funding, view our guidance on CIL grants.
