Broxtowe Borough Council has opened a new £240,000 grant fund for community projects in Broxtowe as part of its UK Shared Prosperity Funding (UKSPF).
Grants of £5,000 to £40,000 are available for community projects in the Borough to be delivered in the 2024/25 financial year. A very small number of exceptional projects requesting grants of up to £100k will be considered.
Projects should support one of the following themes:
- Town Centres and High Streets
• Community Infrastructure, Resilience and Engagement
• Improvements to Green Space, Active Travel and Energy Saving
• Enhancement of Culture and Heritage Offer
• Sports Facilities and Teams
• Digital Infrastructure for community facilities
To apply, organisations should email [email protected] with a brief description of their proposed project including details of the location, activity and expected costs.
A member of the Economic Development Team will be in touch to arrange a pre-application discussion and if the project is eligible, organisations will be invited to make a full application.
The closing date for applications is 22 January 2024. Successful applicants will be notified on 20 March 2024 and projects should be ready to begin on 2 April 2024 and be completed by 31 March 2025.
