Voluntary and community sector grants 2005/06

Press Release: 17/09/2004

Application forms are now available for Winchester City Council's Community Grant Programme. The scheme provides support to a range of community and voluntary groups, including housing organisations, and arts organisations providing services to the residents of the Winchester district.

Over the last six years the Community Grant programme has awarded over £2.5m in revenue funding to a wide range of organisations and groups across the Winchester district.

There are two categories of funding:
• Capital grants for physical building improvements and equipment costs
• Revenue grants for organisational running costs

All applicants must meet the basic criteria which are based on the City Council's corporate priorities, details of which are included in the application pack.

Further details of the grant programmes, including criteria requirements, can be found at www.winchester.gov.uk - click on the Arts and Heritage pages and follow the grants related links.

The closing date for the receipt of applications to both programmes is Monday 15 November 2004. No applications will be accepted after this date.
