Calderdale Council’s Small Grants scheme gives away small grants of up to £3,000 to voluntary and community groups all over Calderdale. This year we are giving away £70,000 to a range of community initiatives and voluntary sector projects.
These grants are awarded through a Small Grants Panel, made up of Calderdale Councillors and representatives from voluntary groups, community groups and groups which represent communities of interest.
These voluntary and community sector representatives are appointed for two years, and we are now inviting nominations for representatives to serve on the Community Grants Panel from April 2016 to March 2018. Each organisation can nominate one person as a representative.
If you feel that you or someone else in your organisation would like to be a member of the Small Grants Panel, and you have not already received a nomination form, please contact the Grants team via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for nominations is Monday 22 February, following this if more than three nominations are received we will go to a ballot, with the successful new Panel members announced in April 2016.
If you have any questions around the Small Grants Panel or Small Grants Scheme please contact Steve Martin on 01422 392317.
