Good Relations Grants Scheme
On Monday 16 March 2020 (subject to funding), Council will open the Good Relations Grants Scheme for the 2020-2021 financial year.
This scheme is aimed at projects taking place between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021 and will operate on a rolling basis (subject to available budget). Should the scheme go over-subscribed, Council may reduce the amount offered on a pro-rata basis.
Applications should be submitted prior to the commencement of the project or expenditure incurred in relation to the project.
The Good Relations Grant Scheme is a 100% funded opportunity, for constituted groups, up to a maximum of £2,500. This can be applied for through one large application or through a series of smaller applications.
Purpose of the fund
The purpose of our Good Relations Grants Scheme reflects the ‘Together: Building a United Community’ Strategy which outlines a vision of “a united community, based on equality of opportunity, the desirability of good relations and reconciliation – one which is strengthened by its diversity, where cultural expression is celebrated and embraced and where everyone can live, learn, work and socialise together, free from prejudice, hate and intolerance.”
This call is for projects taking place between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021 only.
How to apply
Applications can be made online by clicking here. Although Council’s preferred method of application is by online, hard copy applications are available upon request.
Applications must be submitted prior to the commencement of the project or expenditure incurred in relation to the project.
