£135,000 grants fund workshop

A WORKSHOP has been announced aimed at giving local groups advice on how to apply for a share of a £135,000 grant windfall.

Round one of the district council’s Community Grant Scheme will open in April and a series of workshops have been arranged to help organisations who plan to submit an application for funding.

“Community Grants are available for formerly constituted/governed ‘not for profit’ groups that have a specific project that they wish to complete,” said a spokesperson.

“The grants can fund revenue or capital costs and can range from £250 through the simpler ‘Small Grant Scheme’ or up to £8,000 through the larger Community Grant Scheme.”

The Skegness advice workshop will take place in the Arts Room at the Embassy Centre on April 19 between 7pm and 8.30pm.

The application deadline for Round One is May 10.
