Groups in Bradford invited to apply for grant funding for building community projects
9:00am Saturday 21st December 2013 in News
Groups in Bradford can apply for a slice of £14 million funding towards community building projects.
The grant pot, managed by the Homes and Communities Agency, can be used to cover the cost of getting ideas for community building development off the drawing board and up to planning application stage – including paying for detailed site plans and professional fees.
Locality Development Officer Lyn Kesterton said: “Until relatively recently, this grant was only available to projects using the Community Right to Build, but now the eligibility criteria has been widened to include projects of all types.
“This makes it really attractive to all sorts of organisations working to improve their communities through building projects, whether they are community halls, houses, shops, pubs or other facilities.”
