Calderdale Council has made a total of £ 5,000 available for each ward to be spent by March 2015.
The fund must be spent on grants for activities and projects that benefit the ward. For example a community group activity, a community event or an activity or project to improve the environment.
The maximum grant per application is £500 and any group can apply.
Constituted groups should have a bank account in the name of the group so that if successful the money can be transferred.
Other groups should explain how the project or activity will benefit the community. If the application is successful invoices will be paid direct by the North and East Halifax Neighbourhood team.
The Neighbourhood Team is running the grants fund for each ward but decisions on who will receive a grant will be made by a Ward Forum grants panel made up of neutral community representatives.
