Hinckley £15,000 - Cash for your Community!
Leicestershire County Council has made available £320,000 per year for local communities to invest in local improvement of their choice. The funding is available through the 25 Community Forums.
This Community Forum Budget is not a regular grant fund, because local residents are involved in all aspects of the process and they will be making the decision which projects should receive a share of the funds.
Community groups can put forward project ideas for which they are seeking funding. All those project proposals are then made available on the forum’s website so residents can view and comment on them. The community groups and other local residents then come together for a Decision Night to discuss the projects and vote for their favourites.
All proposals will benefit from advice by a panel of experts, including advice on further sources of funding.
Don’t miss out! Dates for your diaries:
Submit a Project Proposal by: 22nd May 2013
View and Comment from: 23rd May 2013
Register your interest to attend by: 12th June 2013
Decision Night: 19th June 2013
Information about how to apply, view and comment on projects and register your interest to attend your local Decision night is available on your forum home page. You can also call 0116 305 7034 for more information.
