We are pleased to announce that a new grant fund is now open to bids from WALC members.

The fund is limited to 20% of a project cost, and a maximum value of £8,000.

We are not limiting the nature of the projects - they must simply deliver something that will be of value to the local community.

Salix are accepting applications from Parish, Town and Community Councils at any time and have interest-free funding available.  For street lighting projects Salix have project compliance criteria that projects must be repaid to Salix in a maximum 5 years and a maximum cost of £191 per tonne of carbon dioxide saved.

The Comic Relief Community fund aims to deliver long lasting community driven change while building the capacity of grassroots organisations.

There are two types of grants available:

Rugby Borough Council logo

Please be informed that Rugby Borough Council’s community grant funds for 2020/21 have now been opened to applications.

Community and Voluntary organisations, including individual artists, can potentially apply either for a Community Project Grant of up to £2,000 or a Rural Development Grant of up to £10,000.

Last week, the Government published the prospectus for the Towns Fund, which will provide an investment of up to £25 million for 100 places to increase economic growth with a focus on regeneration, improved transport, better broadband connectivity, skills and culture.

Warwick District Council logo

Warwick District Council operates a Rural/Urban Initiatives Scheme which gives grants (£1,000 - £30,000) to locally led and run, not-for-profit, community organisations towards capital projects which make use of volunteer labour within the Warwick District area. Capital is defined as 'funds used by an organisation to purchase or upgrade physical assets such as property or equipment'.

Recent reports from Which? show that rural communities are disproportionately affected by cuts to the UK's cash machine network.

The new fund, launched by UK ATM network Link and UK Finance, will give members of the public the chance to apply for a free ATM machine.
