Local Community Groups can apply for funding as East Lindsey District Council’s 2011/12 Community Grant Scheme is now open for round two funding application.
To help those considering an application to make the best bid they can the Council has arranged a series of workshops across the District in partnership with South Lincs Community Voluntary Service.
The workshops take place as follows:
Wednesday, July 13, 2011, 18:30 – 20:00, Stanhope Hall, Horncastle
Wednesday, July 20, 2011, 18:30 – 20:00, Trinity Centre, Louth
Thursday, July 21, 2011, 18:30 – 20:00, Franklin Hall, Spilsby

Tuesday, August 2, 2011, 18:30 – 20:00, Access Alford Community Church, Alford
Grants are available for constituted/governed ‘not for profit’ groups that have a specific project that they wish to complete. The grants can fund revenue or capital costs and can range from £250 through the simpler ‘Small Grant Scheme’ up to 50% of project costs with a maximum £8,000 per year through the ‘Larger Community Grant Scheme’.
The deadline for groups to submit an application to the Scheme is September 5, 2011; and groups are encouraged to contact the Council’s Community Grants Team to book their place on one of the workshops and to discuss their project.
Over the past few years a number of community groups have benefitted from the scheme.
