Minutes:

See the report presented by Aine Hayes, Third Sector Partnership Manager, at Agenda item 3, page 8.

 

Aine Hayes reviewed the allocation of the second round of funding from the Community Sector Budget and third round of funding from the Small Grants Budget.

 

Twenty-eight applications requesting a total amount of £404,128 were received for Community Grant Funding.  Aine referred members to the list of all applicants at Appendix A, page 15 of the agenda, and an overview of the recommended projects at Appendix B, pages 17-21 of the agenda.

 

In response to questions raised about funding allocated to some projects Aine replied that each application was carefully assessed against criteria before being recommended for funding.  Funding allocated was, in some cases, in addition to funding received from other sources or to be managed by a parent organisation for a specific project.   While 50% of the grant is allocated on signing the grant agreement, the balance is only allocated on sign off of a monitoring report evidencing that the project is on track.

 

Based on the assessment process undertaken by officers, the Lead Member recommended 15 organisations for funding, as outlined in the table at 3.5 of the report:
