Grants available for large community projects

By Monmouthshire Beacon/Chepstow Beacon in Community News

£25,000 has been set aside by Monmouth Town Council to support larger community projects in Monmouth during the financial year April 2017 to March 2018.

Applications are being invited from organisations who can demonstrate that a grant would enable them to contribute towards the community affairs committee’s aims.

These are: to support and strengthen community participation, activities and events and to develop a sustainable, welcoming community.

The organisation will be expected to contribute at least 25 per cent of the cost of the project through other fund raising.

Grants are awarded on a year by year basis and should not be relied on for further ongoing support.

Applications from individuals, organisations seeking to promote, support or oppose any political party or religious group, and commercial businesses will not be considered.

Applications from national organisations having local branches may be considered but must demonstrate that their project will be of benefit to communities in Monmouth.

The closing date for completed applications is 12pm on Friday 17th March.
