£105,000 of community grants available in 2015/16


East Lindsey groups interested in applying for Community Grants are invited to a series of workshops, with over £100,000 available.

The scheme can award grants of up to £8,000 to organisations, including not for profit community groups and Town and Parish Councils, which have projects that they wish to deliver for the benefit of East Lindsey residents.

The grants can be used to fund a variety of activities including projects that focus on community facilities, sports and recreation, 
arts and heritage and the environment.

There is approximately £105,000 available to be awarded during the year with half of this to be awarded during round one, which has an application deadline of April 30, 2015.

The remaining funding will be awarded later in the year during round two, which has an application deadline of September 17, 2015.

For support groups wishing to apply for a grant, the Council’s Community Grants Team will hold a series of workshops across the district.

Anyone interested in applying for a grant is encouraged to attend one of the events which will provide a valuable insight into the scheme and help groups to make a successful application.

Local workshops will take place on March 25, from 7-9pm at Tetney Village Hall, and on April 1, from 7–9pm, at Mablethorpe Community Access Point & Library.
