FundingRound one of East Lindsey District Council’s 2013/14 Community Grant Scheme opens this month and a series of workshops have been arranged to help organisations who plan to submit an application for funding.

In the coming financial year the District Council has put £114,950 aside for Community Grants.  This is in addition to the £2,000 allocated to each of the 60 District Councillors to support initiatives in their area.

Community Grants are available for formally constituted/governed ‘not for profit’ groups that have a specific project that they wish to complete. The grants can fund revenue or capital costs and can range from £250 through the simpler ‘Small Grant Scheme’ or up to £8,000 through the larger Community Grant Scheme.

The Community Grant workshops, which help organisations to develop strong applications, will take place as follows:

  • Louth – Wednesday 13th March 7pm  – 8.30pm at The Pavilion, London Road
  • North Thoresby – Thursday 14th March 7pm  – 8.30pm at North Thoresby Village Hall,
  • Skegness – Monday 18th March 7pm – 8.30pm at Council Chamber, Town Hall, Skegness,
  • Mablethorpe – Wednesday 20th March 7pm – 8.30pm at Community Room, Mablethorpe CAP, Stanley Avenue
  • Horncastle  – Thursday 21st March  7pm – 8.30pm at Horncastle Pavilion, Coronation Walk
  • Coningsby – Tuesday 26th March 7pm  – 8.30pm at Coningsby Village Hall,
  • Spilsby – Wednesday 27th March 7pm – 8.30pm at Franklin Hall Spilsby

The application deadline for Round One is 7th May 2013.  A second funding round will be held later in the year, with an application deadline during August 2013.
