Strategic Fund

The Grants programme allows for an ad-hoc Strategic Grant Fund to be offered when funding allows. The decision to open such a fund is delegated to the Director for Communities in consultation with the Council Leader and the Portfolio-holder for Communities.

It has been decided to open a Strategic Fund on 3rd February 2020 for up to £80,000. This funding is available to community groups who are nearing the completion of their fundraising for major refurbishment of their community building.

To be eligible for this one off grant you will need to be close to completing your fundraising target and have your refurbishment project on the shelf and ready to go! You will already have a validated business case and project delivery plan agreed with your board/trustees and have achieved 80-90% of your funding target.

The amount available in this fund is £80,000.

This fund is open from 3rd February to 24th February 2020.
