East Lindsey District Council is holding a series of information workshops to mark the opening of the 2015/16 Community Grant Scheme with over £100k to award.
The scheme can award grants of up to £8,000 to organisations, including not for profit community groups and Town and Parish Councils, which have projects that they wish to deliver for the benefit of East Lindsey residents.
The grants can be used to fund a variety of activities including projects that focus on community facilities, sports and recreation, arts and heritage and the environment.
The scheme has approximately £105,000 available to be awarded during the year with half of this to be awarded during round one which has an application deadline of April 30, 2015. The remaining funding will be awarded later in the year during round two which has an application deadline of September 17, 2015.
To support groups wishing to apply for a grant, the Council’s Community Grants Team will hold a series of workshops across the District and the team is encouraging any organisation considering applying for a grant to attend one of the events which will provide a valuable insight into the scheme and help groups to make a successful application.
The workshops will take place on:
