The Council supports a wide range of community groups and makes contributions to local capital projects. Finance Committee considers and determines the main round of applications in November each year as part of the budget setting process. For these grants, which are payable at the beginning of the next financial year in April, application forms need to be submitted by the 30th of September. Grants may be considered at other times for a purpose which has arisen during the year so long as funds are available.
In April 2022 grants were made to the following organisations: East Hampshire Citizens Advice Bureau, Crossover Youth Centre, Liss Area Historical Society, Liss Athletic Football Club Juniors, LUPIN (Liss Unites People In Need), Hampshire & Isle of Wight Victim Support, Liss Band and Liss Village Club. A grant to Rake Village Hall is dependant on project deliverability.
Liss Parish Council is also supporting the following by a Grant in Kind, specifically free or reduced rate use of the Village Hall: Liss Royal Voluntary Service Luncheon Club, Liss, Greatham & Hawkley Friendship Fund and Coryton Alms Houses.
