Funding Workshop: South Derbyshire Community Grants Fund – Capital Funding

Active Derbyshire, Funding, News

South Derbyshire CVS is hosting a Funding Workshop about South Derbyshire Community Grants Fund which provides capital grants up to £25K.

The event is to be held on Wednesday 25th October between 2:00 and 3:00pm.

If you want to find out more about the South Derbyshire Community Grant Fund, then this session is for you.

This scheme, administered by South Derbyshire District Council, is backed by part of South Derbyshire’s allocation of UK Shared Prosperity Funding (UKSPF) and Rural England Prosperity Fund (REPF) monies.

The Rural England Prosperity Fund supports activities that specifically address the particular challenges rural areas face and supports prosperity in areas that need it most. It is complementary to funding used to support rural areas under the UKSPF.

The part of the South Derbyshire Community Grant Fund backed by the Rural England Prosperity Fund provides capital funding for voluntary and community groups/not for profit organisations in the government designated rural areas of South Derbyshire. This can be spent on lasting assets such as a building or equipment that supports new and improved community infrastructure, providing essential community services and assets for local people.

The part of the South Derbyshire Community Grant Fund backed by the Shared Prosperity Fund is open for applications from community and voluntary groups/not for profit organisations delivering community facilities, projects and initiatives across the South Derbyshire District.

The Fund has a total of £350,000 available over the next two years until March 2025.

Capital grants of between £2,000 and £25,000 are available (up to 80% of total project costs) with a minimum project cost of £2,500. Match funding of 20% is required.

Applicants must demonstrate that their project meets one or more of the Shared Prosperity Fund outcomes and further information including a Guide to the Criteria, Application Process and Conditions of Funding is available on the Community Grants section of the Council’s website: https://www.southderbyshire.gov.uk/our-services/crime-and-community-safety/community-grants

Eligible applicants can request an application form from the Council’s Community Partnership Officer, Sally Hemsley Email: sally.hemsley@southderbyshire.gov.uk

It is an open rolling application process until the 31 December 2024 (to allow for completion of projects) or until all funding has been allocated.
