Grants on offer right now!
Community and voluntary organisations, small groups and charities in Erewash are all being urged to apply for funding support as part of Erewash Borough Council’s Community Grant scheme.
A new round of funding – the first of 2017 - has opened and the council is keen for groups both large and small to get in touch right now and apply for up to £2,000 to help them with their work.
The council has helped countless groups over the last few years through the grants scheme and wants to spread the message to even more groups that community grants are on offer to help with new and innovative projects that help the residents of Erewash.
Groups supporting older people, community and voluntary organisations – ranging from scout groups to charities like Sight Support Derbyshire – along with play schemes and arts and sporting groups all made successful bids for a small grant in the 2016/17 rounds.
The latest deadline for applications is 12.30pm on Friday 9 June and full details of the scheme and how to apply for a grant are available at www.erewash.gov.uk – click on the ‘Community and Living’ tab and the link.
Subject to funding remaining available, the next deadline for community grant applications will be 12.30pm on Monday 24 July, confirmation and full details will be provided on the council’s website.
