|Community and voluntary organisations can now apply for a grant from Rugby Borough Council.
The council has a total funding pot of nearly £85,000 available for 2018/2019, with grants on offer to community, voluntary and charitable organisations based in the borough.
Organisations can apply for:
The community grants support Rugby’s regeneration strategy, drawn up by the Rugby Local Strategic Partnership (LSP), and the council’s corporate strategy.
The regeneration strategy focuses on developing and supporting projects which increase community cohesion, improve health and wellbeing, tackle unemployment and help residents access education and training.
Cllr Emma Crane, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for communities and homes, and chair of the Rugby LSP, said: “The regeneration strategy has put a framework in place to support new projects and services which benefit residents.
“By supporting the goals of the regeneration strategy and the objectives of the council’s corporate strategy, the community grants aim to encourage voluntary and community organisations to work in partnership with us to make a real difference in our communities.
“We recognise the vital role the voluntary sector plays in the borough and understand the challenges of securing funding,” Cllr Crane added.
“So I’d urge community and voluntary organisations to find out more about our funding criteria and make an application before the deadline.”
Applications for community grants must be made by 12 noon on Monday 9 April.
