Revenue grants scheme
The revenue grant scheme is funded on an annual basis from the council's general revenue account. The council allocates approximately £400,000 each year to this scheme.
The council has recently approved a new revenue that seeks to offer financial support to the local voluntary sector for a period of four financial years commencing in 2013/14. The scheme can provide funding towards ongoing running costs such as staffing, heating, administration or rent costs. The scheme does not intend to fund short one off types of activities.
The scheme will fund organisations that meet at least one of the following grant priorities:
Advice services – provision of advice services that will improve the quality of life to those in need in South Oxfordshire
Care services – provision of care services that will improve the quality of life to those in need in South Oxfordshire
Prevent anti-social behaviour – provision of services that will help to prevent or reduce anti-social behaviour in South Oxfordshire

The council's Revenue Grants Scheme closed on 28 September 2012 and is not due to re-open in the foreseeable future, as the current allocations are awarded on a four-year basis.
