COMMUNITY GRANTS NOW AVAILABLE

Voluntary and community groups across East Yorkshire will now be able to benefit from further funding to help them get back to business through the ‘Do it For East Yorkshire Community Grants’.

The small grants scheme, funded by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, is intended to enable Town and Parish councils, voluntary and community sector organisations and others to:

• hold events and festivals

• organise COVID recovery community activity

• extend access to services, all intended to encourage residents back onto high streets and to utilise arts, cultural and community facilities.

The grants scheme is now open for applications, in line with the Government’s current Road map which aims to see a lifting of most remaining restrictions.

The total grant fund is currently £250,000, made up of £200,000 from the council’s budget and an additional £50,000 from the council’s public health team. This additional budget is particularly aimed at supporting vulnerable residents to participate in planned activities, particularly those who have been shielding and might need additional support to get involved.

Grants will be available until March 2023, or until the full funding is spent, whichever is sooner.

Councillor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic growth and tourism at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “These grants will go a long way in supporting our communities to get back to normal once we see the lifting of the remaining restrictions.

“We have waited a long time for events and festivals to safely return and for COVID recovery community activity, both as examples, to make a difference to our region’s communities and being a big welcome to people’s lives.”
