Last opportunity to get grant funding

TWO weeks remain for community and voluntary sector organisations in East Lindsey to submit their community grant applications to East Lindsey District Council in time for the round one deadline of May 10, 2012.

The district council makes available grants of up to £8,000 to not-for-profit organisations, including town and parish councils, to support them in delivering projects that make a difference in their local area.

Community grant applications can fund a variety of activities including projects that focus on community facilities, sports and recreation, arts and heritage and the environment. The money can be both capital and revenue.

A second funding round will open later in the year for projects not ready to submit an application to round one. The round two deadline will be September 13.

Coun Sandra Harrison, portfolio holder for communities at the district council, said: “community grants support a diverse range of projects that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. I’d encourage any local organisations with a project for which they require funding to consider submitting an application to us as we might be able to help.”

Grant application packs, along with an information guide, can be downloaded from East Lindsey District Council at or by contacting the community grants ream at or by calling 01507 601111.
