New grants scheme for community groups goes live

New grants scheme for community groups goes live

Community groups across Derbyshire can, from today, apply for a range of new grants to support their activities.

Derbyshire County Council have launched their Action Grants scheme and groups, clubs, local charities and other non-profit organisations working in communities across the county can download the online application pack.

The themes of the grants are:

- Youth activity
- Community safety
- Community activity
- Physical activity and sport

If a group's planned project is based on any of those themes, the online application pack will let organisers know what they can and can't apply for.

Decisions on grant applications will be made after regular application round deadlines.

The first deadline is 30 June 2018, so groups hoping to get funding for schemes in the school summer holidays are advised to apply before that date.

Derbyshire County Council are also inviting applications for a limited number of medium grants of up to £5,000 and larger grants of up to £10,000 for projects which can have clear local support and will provide a lasting benefit for a Derbyshire community, such as Dronfield.

The full criteria for these grants is also in the application pack.

Applications for medium and larger grants will be considered annually, with the first deadline also 30 June 2018.
