Current schemes

UCI Road World Cycling Championship - Event Fund 2019 

The UCI Event Fund 2019 has been established to make funding available to Parish/Town Councils, community groups and voluntary groups to help with the delivery of UCI related activities when the district welcomes the UCI Road World Cycling Championships on Thursday 26 September and Sunday 29 September 2019.

A total amount of £25,000 has been made available to support community based events/celebrations relating to the UCI in September 2019. £5,000 will be allocated to projects in Richmond, as a host town (either as one joint single project or multiple projects within Richmond), and the remaining £20,000 will be allocated to community events outside of Richmond, with priority given to events taking place on the route of either day, should the scheme be oversubscribed. 

The maximum grant per application is £2,000 with no match funding required. Applicants can submit more than one application, however a second bid may be overlooked if we are oversubscribed.

The deadline for applications is 12pm on Monday 8th July 2019. Click on the link to download the application form.
