Tenant Improvement Grant

The Tenant Improvement Grant (TIG) is available to all Dacorum Borough Council tenants and leaseholders. It aims to give our tenants and leaseholders the opportunity to make small improvements within their environment. TIG is all about helping our tenants and leaseholders to step forward with their ideas to improve their communal areas, health and wellbeing, and to build stronger communities. It is important to note that all grant projects will be tenant led with the support of an Improvement and Engagement Officer. 

You can apply for a grant as little as £50 up to £5,000, which meet one (or more) of our five priorities to help make life better for tenants and leaseholders.

Please note: If you are successful in being awarded a Tenant Improvement Grant, you may not apply for further funding until the next financial year. 

Grants rounds

There are three rounds for the Tenant Improvement Grant each year.

Applications are now closed for 2021. We will notify you when applications open in 2022.
