£20,000 in new Community Grant funding has been made available by Blaby District Council to support environmentally friendly projects in the district.
The two new Green Grants will join the selection of grants community groups and sports clubs can apply for, including Capital Grants, Revenue Grants and Everyone Active grants. Funding in the grants ranges from £500 to £4,000.
Re-start grants of up to £250 will also be made available to voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations by the Council. These one-off grants are there to help groups get back on their feet after lockdown and are funded by proceeds from the Love Blaby Lottery. More »
John Richardson, Strategic Director at Blaby District Council, said: "We know it can be tough for voluntary organisations to prioritise spending on environmental initiatives. We hope that these grants go some way towards supporting their own green agendas.
"Community grants have been an important part of our support for the community for more than a decade and we encourage groups to take a look on our website at what they might be eligible for and apply online."
Find out more about the new Green and VCS Restart grants, as well as the other funding available and apply online at www.blaby.gov.uk/communitygrants.
Community groups interested in finding out more about the grants are invited to attend an online Zoom event on Wednesday 28 April. Anyone interested in attending can book a place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0116 272 7566. » Less
