Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Safer, Stronger Communities
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
In response to comments and feedback from Members, partners, and the public, the Cabinet Member proposes to introduce a mechanism for smaller grants to be made by CLCs as part of the Community Initiative Fund (CIF). This would be for smaller-scale projects seeking funding of no more than £750 for total costs of their project.
An organisation seeking funding for £750 or less will be able to apply direct for a grant as an alternative to using the crowdfunding platform. This would be aimed at smaller groups with low project costs.
The Cabinet Member for Safer, Stronger Communities has approved:
1) changes to the operation and processes for the allocation of Community Initiative Fund money to both a crowdfunding model and a smaller ‘micro fund’ as outlined in the report; and
2) that the change takes effect from May 2019.
