Cheshire East Council is pleased to announce that despite the challenging financial climate, community and voluntary organisations are set to benefit from more than £23,000 of grant funding.
The final round of Community Grants for 2011/2012 has seen 44 groups receive awards ranging from £75 to £3,000.
Grants are available to support community, environmental, sports, arts, heritage and play projects. Only one grant can be awarded to each organisation per financial year.
The Council recognises the valuable input that voluntary and community groups bring to local life.
Applications are judged on a number of criteria and they should be able to display that their project: enhances the quality of life for Cheshire East residents; increases involvement in the community; demonstrates the potential to be sustained in the future; and that it can attract more participants.
For more information on Community Grants go to www.cheshireeast.gov.uk and look in the Community and Living section. The next deadline for applications is March 30.
