Bid for cash for your community group

Have your say

COMMUNITY groups have just days to put in their bid for cash to back up their work.

Organisations in County Durham have until Friday to apply for money from the Your Money, Your Area, Your Views Community Grants Fund.

The fund is being led by the 14 Area Action Partnerships (AAP) run by Durham County Council.

Grants differ from area to area but range from £500 to £5,000, with the cash available for projects and initiatives that meet the priorities of its AAP.

The final decision over who will benefit will be made by members of the public at voting events taking place next month and November.

People who attend the events will also have the opportunity to help the council decide how future savings in the authority’s overall budget can be made, and also vote on what they think are the key priorities their AAP should be looking to address in the future.
