Borough-wide Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy Fund Now Open

Nearly £900,000 is now available for community projects and the Council is asking for bids from right across the borough to access this funding.

Applications open today and will run until Sunday 25 July.

The Council is inviting proposals for community projects directed towards:

  • mentoring services for children and young people
  • tackling crime and anti-social behaviour
  • employment and training support for people with disabilities and/or mental health needs
  • recovery from Covid-19

Councillor Jonathan Slater, Cabinet Member for the Community Sector, said:

“We are pleased to be able to start accepting bids for this money which will bring great benefits to our communities at a time when many could do with a boost after such a tough 15 months.

“As long as a proposed project covers two wards or more, no idea will be too small for us to consider, so please think about how we might support your initiative.”

The Borough-wide NCIL fund is for projects covering two or more wards or the entire borough. Grants are available for small, medium or large scale projects of up to £100,000 that are delivered by individuals, organisations or in partnership.
