Groups, charities and organisations are being encouraged to apply to a ‘one-off’ awards programme being launched next year by Mid Suffolk District Council.
The authority’s Locality Award programme kicks off tomorrow and is open for applications until January 8. Each councillor has a £5,000 pot that they can use to help fund projects or organisations that have a direct impact on communities in the district. Awards range from £250 upwards, and a councillor can support no more than 10 projects.
A spokesperson for Mid Suffolk District Council said: “Applicants selected for an award must be able to demonstrate that their project, event or group meets one or more of Mid Suffolk’s Strategic Priorities and should be able to demonstrate its sustainability over the coming years.”
Copies of application forms and guidance can be found at www.midsuffolk.gov.uk under the Your Community section or requested from the Communities Team on 01449 724650.
