Charities and community projects in the Arun area are being urged not to miss out on funding from West Sussex County Council
The three Joint Area Committees in Arun each have around £10,000 of Community Initiative Fund available to allocate from the 2014/15 financial year.
The County Council Chairman of the three Committees, Nigel Peters, Graham Tyler and Ann Rapnik said: “Through the Community Initiative Fund, we have been able to give grants to a variety of projects which have made a difference to people in our area, including costs towards a caged practice pitch for a Cricket Club to equipment for a Community Music and Arts Festival.”
“We would encourage any individual or group in the Arun area who need assistance with a project that will benefit the community to send us their application as soon as possible.
“We’d love to help more people, and I’m sure there are lots of wonderful and worthy charities or organisations that would benefit from our help.”
The deadlines for applications are 3 February for the Eastern Arun area, 9 February for the Downland Arun area and 18 February for the Western Arun area.
Application forms and information on how to apply, as well as eligibility criteria, can be found on the Community Initiative Funding page of the West Sussex County Council website or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 03302225409.
Grant applications will be considered at the next round of meetings in March 2015
