Mid Suffolk’s District Councillors have launched their Locality Awards, inviting community groups, charities and organisations to apply for funding for 2018.
Mid Suffolk District Council’s Locality Award programme is now open and is welcoming applications.
The programme means that each Mid Suffolk councillor has a £6,250 pot that he or she can use to award to projects or organisations that have a direct impact on Mid Suffolk communities. Funding awards can range from £250 upwards.
Applicants selected for an award must be able to demonstrate that their project, event or group meets one or more of Mid Suffolk’s Strategic Priorities and where relevant should be able to demonstrate its sustainability over the coming years.
Any community groups wishing to apply for a share of the funding can do so by contacting their District Councillor. Details of District Councillors are available on the council website.
Cllr Julie Flatman, Mid Suffolk District Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “Suffolk Day has just given us a chance to celebrate our county and our communities, and to remember the incredible work being done by unsung heroes across the county. These Locality Awards allow all groups doing that work to access funding, giving local councillors a change to support groups both large and small that make a real difference in the lives of our residents. I’d urge any community groups looking for support to come forward and talk to their councillors about these awards and how their work can benefit.”
