Applications invited for Council Communities Fund 2018-19

Besi Besemar May 1, 2018

Following the success of the new Communities Fund last year, Brighton & Hove City Council are inviting applications for grants from the fund in 2018-19.

LAST year over 100 local community groups, voluntary organisations and not-for-profit social enterprises were supported by the fund.

If you’re group is working to achieve one of these three simple outcomes you may be eligible for support:

♦ Improving Wellbeing

♦ Building Cohesion

♦ Promoting Fairness

There are three funding schemes to choose from:

♦ Engagement (for organisations with an income usually up to £20K pa)
♦ Resilience (for organisations with an income usually up to £100K pa)
♦ Collaboration (for partnership projects comprising organisations of any size)

For Engagement and Resilience funding there are three application deadlines:

May 18, 2018 (for full year running costs or early project starts)
July 20, 2018 (for half-year running costs or mid-year project starts)
October 19, 2018 (for final quarter running costs or end of year project starts)

There are no bid deadlines for Collaboration Funding. Instead an agreed Expression of Interest document will be required in support of an application.

The council have developed a straightforward on-line bidding platform that allows for you to complete an application in your own time and save your progress at any point.
