Applications for the second round of the Community Grant Scheme are now closed. Find out more here.

What have we funded so far?

In 2021/2 we funded eight brilliant, varied projects that all explored, celebrated, or protected Hull’s maritime story in different ways. From community litter picks that led to the creation of new sculptural works, to training volunteers to work on historic vessels, to funding transport for a maritime community reunion, to supporting ‘see shanty’ performances, we’re open to projects and activities that take a broad view on what ‘maritime’ means to our area today.

Examples and insights from activities funded in Round One can be seen on our social media channels and on our website blog posts. Read more about those projects here.

In 2023, the Maritime Community Grant scheme was even bigger, funding 13 projects. The second round of funding has seen a diverse mix of projects and community groups and has reflected Hull’s rich maritime history and the many different ways in which ‘maritime’ is part of our city’s identity.

Reflections on these wonderful projects can be found on our website where we have a series of guest blog posts from participants in some of the community grant projects.
