CEC's cabinet has approved a £2m new homes bonus fund to assist communities where new housing developments have been built between 2011 and 2017. The scheme will run for 2 years and is designed to achieve positive benefits based on locally-identified needs. The fund will give local councils and the voluntary, community and faith sector an opportunity to apply for projects that can make a lasting difference to communities and, as such, the minimum grant figure is set at £10,000 with no upper limit. For Congleton area (Inc Sandbach) the total allocation of funding is £328,973 for each of the two financial years.

Cheshire East are now inviting applications to the fund for the Congleton award group area – the list of agreed priorities is attached and projects must meet these when applying for funding.
The closing date for applications is 31st December 2018.

CVS is offering free funding support to all organisations wishing to bid to the first round of this fund, including non-members. To access support please email enquiries [at] cvsce [dot] org [dot] uk.

Further Information is now available on the CEC website (click here)  or email nhb [at] cheshireeast [dot] gov [dot] uk.
