Organisations can now apply for Inverclyde Council’s ‘small grants fund’ for the financial year 2016 – 17. Application received by 11th April 2016 will be considered by the grants to voluntary organisations committee at the meeting scheduled for 11 May.
The council is encouraging organisations not in receipt of a three year grant to apply for a share of the £135,429 available for one of grants in the year 2016 – 17. The ‘grants to voluntary organisations fund’ is aimed at helping local voluntary organisations with a variety of expenses including running costs, developing or starting up a new project and buying new equipment.
Organisations are required to register with the Council when they apply. This is done using a registration / application form. Guidance notes are available to assist applicants to both decide if the fund is appropriate for them and to help them register and apply.
