Tour de Yorkshire Event Fund 2019 

The Tour de Yorkshire Event Fund has been established to make funding available to parish/town councils, community groups and voluntary groups to help with the delivery of Tour de Yorkshire related activities when the district welcomes the Tour on Sunday 5 May 2019.

The maximum grant per application is £1,000 with no match funding required.

There is an initial deadline of 12 noon on 24th March for applications, with bids being considered week commencing 25th March. If there are any further funds available following this deadline, the scheme will re-open to bids for a short period of time. Applications will be considered at the same time to ensure the funds are allocated in line with the criteria. Preference will be given to activities taking place on the route.
