The programme provides financial assistance to community groups and sports clubs across the county, which are responding to locally identified needs.
Groups or clubs can be responding to local needs through the provision of activities or services within their community.
According to the council: “While a broad range of funding is provided annually through community grants including support for community development, sports development and community events, the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the delivery of community, voluntary and sporting activities is also recognised.
“To address these challenges and to be as adaptive and responsive as possible to current community needs, the 2021 Community Grants Programme provides additional grant supports including a Community Centre Re-Opening Fund, Operational Supports for Sports Clubs Fund and a Covid Resilience Fund.”
Groups and clubs wishing to make an application or in need of information are encouraged to contact the Community Development team on 4149156 or email@example.com
