Rossendale Council Grants 2017/18 and 2018/19 application process opens
Following Cabinet approval in November, Rossendale Borough Council has opened the application process for Rossendale Council Grants.
Cllr Alyson Barnes, Leader of the Council said “We recognise that these are difficult times for many people and there are some key challenges for Rossendale residents.
Financial exclusion refers to the difficulty that many people have in accessing welfare benefits or using mainstream financial services such as bank accounts, savings, loans, insurance and other products.
Local charities and other community organisations applying for funding must have a track record of working in partnership to deliver services to Rossendale residents to improve financial inclusion in the Borough and must have local knowledge of the issues facing the different communities within the Borough.
Organisations can apply for a two year grant for funding from £7000 upwards, although the amount of grant funding available may not cover everyone’s requests.
The Council is also pleased to be continuing to provide small grants of up to £500 to local community groups through the Neighbourhood Forums.
