In July 2008, DCDT was successful in securing a grant from the Community Development Foundation to become a Local Funder for its national Grassroots Grants programme funded by the Office of the Third Sector.  The Grassroots Grants programme ran until March 2011, delivering small grants to local groups across the whole of Doncaster.

Grassroots Grants were designed to enable small groups to access funds to further their aims and undertake activities that benefit the local community.  Applications were assessed monthly by a Grants Panel of local people.
