Councillor Community Grants Scheme
Torridge District Council is pleased to announce the launch of a new Councillor Community Grants Scheme.
Voluntary or community groups serving residents in the Torridge District area are eligible and are encouraged to apply for this grant.
The Councillor Community Grants Scheme will enable Councillors to support projects benefiting residents in their ward, and each Councillor has been allocated a budget of £1,000. The scheme will enable Councillors to support local groups within their communities even more, and to become more involved with local projects at a grass roots level.
Councillors are able to join up with other ward Councillors to support a wider project, and can offer up to 100% of the total project costs. Councillors may choose to award the whole of their £1,000 budget to one project, or break the fund down into smaller grants to a number of different projects.
If you are interested in applying to the Scheme please contact the appropriate ward Councillor in the first instance.If you are unsure which Councillor represents your area please contact the Community Development Officer, on 01237 428756 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
