Partnership Fund Committee
The Exmoor National Park Authority has made funding available from its Discretionary Budget to support projects to help to achieve National Park purposes. This funding is based on the Authority's focus on working with and through its key communities, placing a greater emphasis on 'localism' and working in new ways. The Partnership Fund is open to applications from community groups, businesses, charities, individuals and other organisations. Applications, including proposals worked up by National Park staff, are considered by the Partnership Fund Committee. The overarching focus of the Partnership Fund is the achievement of National Park purposes with a weighting to projects that also provide community and economic benefits. For more information about how to make an application to the Partnership Fund or funded prospects visit our webpage.
