2020/21 Community Initiative Funding - Underspend FRC03 20/21

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Fire & Rescue and Communities

Decision status: Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The County Council’s Community Initiative Fund (CIF) provides grant funding to support community projects that aim to make a positive impact on people’s wellbeing. This fund is 140K per annum. A decision has been taken by the Council to cease this funding, so 2020/21 is its final year of operation. 


At the end of each financial year a decision is taken to establish the route for any unallocated CIF funding. It is proposed that any in-year (2020/21) underspend of CIF should be used to be utilised to support the newly established Food Partnerships across West Sussex and charities that specialise in the redistribution of otherwise wasted food.
