Community Grants - In-Year
In-Year Grants will reopen for a one off round from Monday 18th November to Friday 13th December 2013.
To avoid disappointment get your application in as soon as possible as there is a limited pot of money available!
Applications of up to a maximum of £2,000 will be considered and awards will be made in early January due to the Christmas break.
Who can apply?
You can apply for a grant if you are a formally constituted voluntary or community organisation. Projects will be judged on their individual merits and contribution to the community. Applications are accepted from organisations based in or able to demonstrate benefits within Southend which are in the voluntary or not-for-profit sector.
Funding is not available for:
- Groups whose main aim is campaigning
- Activities or projects that promote religion
- Groups that have uncommitted/unrestricted funds that could be used to fund the activity
- Projects that have already taken place
- Activities, the full cost of which can be charged for
- Routine maintenance of equipment/premises
It is essential that you read the 'General Guidance' notes before filling in the application form to ensure that your organisation is eligible for funding and that the activities or services for which you are seeking support meet the Council's own critical priorities and the overall needs of Southend's communities.
Funded groups will be required to keep financial records (receipts/invoices) of how the grant money was spent and will be asked to complete a simple monitoring form at the end of the financial year.
