Conwy Communities First Tackling Poverty Small Grants Fund 2013-15
The Minister for Communities & Tackling Poverty has recently announced the launch of the Tackling Poverty Small Grants Fund (‘TPSGF’). The Fund will be targeted at Communities First Clusters and it replaces the small grants element of the Communities Facilities & Activities Programme and the previous Communities First Programme’s Trust Fund.
The TPSGF is available to community groups and organisations within or benefitting Conwy Communities First Cluster. Funding is available in financial years 2013/14 (to be spent by end March 2014) and 2014/15 (to be spent by end March 2015). £25,000 per annum in total will be made available to Conwy Communities First to administer for projects costing, individually, no more than £10,000. The funding is Revenue only in 2013/14 with both Capital and Revenue available in 2014/15.
All projects will be required to demonstrate their relevance to the Tackling Poverty Agenda and how they contribute to the activities of the Communities First Cluster.
To give organisations applying for the Communities First Tackling Poverty Small Grants Fund a chance to discuss their funding applications, to look for areas where they can work together and avoid duplication please call in to meet the Communities First Team on 28 November 2013, 2pm-5pm, at the Bay Learning Centre, 47 Conway Road, Colwyn Bay. (Please complete the attached booking form).
Can’t make the date?
Please let us know so that we can send you a copy of the notes from the meeting and contact details of the organisations that attended or registered an interest.
What kind of projects is funding available for?
We are looking for projects to be delivered within the Conwy Communities First Cluster, (see map for areas covered), that will help to prevent poverty, help people into work or mitigate the impacts of poverty. Please see the funding guidelines for more information.
For more information please contact us on 01492 575794 or Communities.First@conwy.gov.uk
Full guidance on the scheme is attached together with a map outlining the Communities First areas in Conwy. The deadline for submission of projects to Conwy Communities First is 13th December 2013.
We look forward to working with you over the coming weeks. Can you please share with any community groups or organisations that may be interested.
NB Welsh forms will be circulated shortly but we are keen to get this info to you asap in the meantime.
