Shropshire Council Covid-19 Small Grants Programme:
8th April 2020

Shropshire Council has now launched a small grants programme aimed at helping local communities respond to or cope with the current Covid-19 crisis. In total £75,000 is available to be distributed. Grants of up to £500 are being made available and may be used for either:

 

  • supporting a local community response to Covid-19, OR
  • sustaining a local asset, e.g. village hall, which has been adversely affected by loss of income as a result of the coronavirus crisis

 

Applications may be made by the following types of organisation:

 

  • A not-for-profit voluntary or community organisation
  • A registered charity
  • A not for profit company or community interest company or other social enterprise
  • A parish or town council

 

The funding is being made available in up to 3 waves. The first funding window opens on 2nd April and closes on Friday 17th April 2020. Any applications received after the first wave closes will be held over to the next one which will follow shortly afterwards – further updates will be provided as this progresses.

 

Full guidance and application forms are available on a dedicated web page https://shropshire.gov.uk/coronavirus/grant-funding-opportunities-and-resources-for-local-communities/covid-19-small-grants-programme/ . Applicants are encouraged to speak to their local elected member and may also seek help and advice from their local Community Reassurance Team who can be contacted at communityreassurance@shropshire.gov.uk .
