Voluntary sector providers urged to apply for grant

Voluntary and charitable organisations in Uttlesford are being urged to apply for funding to help with their costs in providing services to local communities.

Last year, Uttlesford District Council handed out £330,000, with an additional one-off grant of £53,000 towards Covid expenses, through its Voluntary Sector Provider Contribution Fund scheme. It has now re-launched the scheme for 2022/23 and has opened the process for new applications.

Awards will only be made to registered charities whose work fits with the council's own corporate plan priorities, details of which can be found at www.uttlesford.gov.uk/corporate-plan.

The grant is for revenue expenditure only and cannot be used towards capital projects such as refurbishment of buildings.

The closing date for applications is midday on Friday 21 January 2022.

An application form can be downloaded, or for further information contact Sue Hayden, Community Development Officer, on 01799 510563 or shayden@uttlesford.gov.uk.
