Third Sector Grants
The Neath Port Talbot Third Sector grant fund is now open for applications for 2023-2024 financial year.
The council is prepared to provide funding for up to 3 years to provide 3rd sector organisations with the security to apply for funding from other sources and enable a longer term approach to planning and securing sustainability.
