Projects in the West of England can now apply to the relaunched Express Grant Programme to support charitable and community activities, including coronavirus response.
Since relaunching the Express Grant Programme has already funded nine projects including Inns Court Residents Group who were awarded £2,000 to start phase two of the cut down and clean up of the green space at Inns Court in South Bristol. This will improve community safety and the general look of the area which has become overgrown, causing a visibility problem on the streets, drug use and fly tipping.
The Express Grant Programme is currently accepting applications for activities that are directly responding to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
What can you apply for?
The Express Grant Programme can support charitable and community activities, projects and services that aim to improve the lives of local people by addressing specific needs and disadvantages within their communities.
Maximum grant awarded: Grants of £500 – £5,000.
This grant programme is open for applications all year.
