Following the Nithsdale Area Committee meeting on 13 September, Members agreed to open a Small Grants Fund with the remaining £13k from this Discretionary Fund to support projects which will tackle poverty and inequality in Nithsdale with grants of up to £1,500 available now.
The website (https://dumgal.gov.uk/AreaCommitteeFunding) will soon be updated, but in the meantime, information below and attached will be of interest to your organisation should you wish to apply. I would also appreciate if you could share this across your community and networks in Nithsdale.
NITHSDALE TACKLING POVERTY AND INEQUALITIES – SMALL GRANTS FUND – NOW OPEN!
Small grant programme to support the following Nithsdale Area priorities:
- Digital Connectivity
- Food Insecurity
- Fuel Poverty
- Warm Hubs
Constituted Groups, operating in Nithsdale, can apply for up to £1,500 towards projects which support one or more of the priorities. Match funding will be required as you cannot request 100% from Council sources of funding.
Applications will be assessed on a first-come first-served basis and the fund will close when the budget is fully allocated.
