Applications are now open for two new community grants
Published: Tuesday, 11 January, 2022
Stroud District Council is inviting applications from organisations for funds to help support communities recover in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Community Wellbeing Grant is for groups who work with their communities to reduce inequality and promote aspects of wellbeing such as physical, mental and financial health, social connection, arts, culture, heritage and the environment.
It is intended for applications between £1,000 and £20,000 per year, budgeted over three years. The term of the grant has been extended from one year to three to give voluntary and community organisations more security.
The deadline for applications is 31 January 2022.
The Small Grants Fund is a new fund for awards of less than £1,000.
The simple two-page application from is designed to support small groups with less experience of bid writing, to get small scale projects off the ground.
New bids will be considered every three months, throughout 2022.
Cllr Chris Brine, chair of Stroud District Council’s Community and Licensing Committee said:
“One of Stroud District Council’s priorities is to support community resilience and wellbeing.
“Last year we awarded more than £155,000 000 to help voluntary and community organisations in our district, and we will continue to support and strengthen communities with these two new grants.”
