Community Group Grants 2019-20 - now open for applications

Posted: Mon, 02 Sep 2019 15:18 by Carolyn Jennings

Each year the Parish Council sets aside a small fund to help local community groups within Crich Parish.

If you run a community group, or belong to one, have you considered applying for a grant?

Perhaps there is an item that your group would like but cannot afford, perhaps you need help with running costs, or you want to organise a community event – a Parish Council Community Group Grant could be the answer. More »

Obviously, there are a few rules around applying, but they are simple and straightforward.

When considering applications for grants to be awarded in January 2020 the Parish Council will be guided by the following criteria:

  • The group must serve the community and must not be run for gain.
  • The working of the group must involve a degree of self-help.
  • The group must have an open membership policy.
  • At least 50% of members must live in Crich, Fritchley, Whatstandwell, or Wheatcroft.
  • The group must be able to demonstrate the need for financial support as shown by the presentation of current Accounts or a Financial Statement. Out of date Accounts or Financial Statements cannot be accepted. Bank statements cannot be accepted.
  • Applications must be made in writing using the official application form.
  • Grants will only be considered if the application has been made in the prescribed way; is complete, includes current Accounts or a Financial Statement, and has been submitted to the Parish Clerk by Friday 4th October 2019. Incomplete and/or late applications cannot be accepted.

The application form is attached here, or can be obtained on request from the Clerk – Carolyn Jennings » Less
