Funding Opportunity - Boost for community decision-making

5th July 2016

Applications are now open for a new £2 million fund giving communities the opportunity to vote on how money is spent in their area.

The £2 million Community Choices Fund will be targeted at work in deprived areas, and for the first time community groups as well as all public authorities, including local authorities, will be able to apply for funding to organise their own Community Choices budgeting events.

These events give communities the opportunity to make decisions on how and where investment is spent in their area - for example employability initiatives, projects that encourage volunteering, and training for young people.

Please note that the closing date for applications is midnight 29 July 2016.
