Community groups and projects can now apply to the new £11.5 million Investing in Communities Fund to tackle disadvantage, poverty and inequality.
The £11.5 million funding is for 2019 to 2020. The fund is open for applications from 7 May until 14 June 2019 with grant offers expected to commence in September this year.
A key component of the new fund is the availability of multi-year awards for those who wish to apply for funding over more than twelve months. Depending on the nature, scale and duration of any proposal, the minimum amount which can be applied for is £3,000 over a six month period, while the maximum is £250,000 over three consecutive years.
More information on the Investing in Communities Fund is available from their website.
