Last year we highlighted a new community fund for projects £10, 000 – £50, 000 to improve local areas.
Ruth Brown of SCC has been in contact to advise of a new round of awards –
I am writing to let you know that a new round of Surrey County Council’s fund for community improvements has been announced. Bids to this fund can be submitted for requests between £10,000 up to a maximum of £50,000 for projects which can demonstrate that they will make a real difference to the lives of the local community. The funding is intended primarily to cover capital costs linked to community infrastructure projects. A total of £1 million has been made available for this financial year, 2013-14.
Proposals for funding for local projects will need to be submitted via your local Surrey County Councillor (please contact after the elections on 3 May 2013) and the community partnerships team (please contact myself or Sarah Goodman on firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for the first round of bids is midday on 28 June 2013. The Leader will then consider the Panel’s recommendations on 11 September 2013. Any applications received after the 28 June will be referred to the second round of bids which close midday on the 24 October 2013, with the Leader making a decision on successful bids on 4 December 2013.
