Funding boost opportunity for community groups

COMMUNITY groups in the Daventry district can bid for a share of £100,000 in a Dragon’s Den-style scheme.

The community action grants, run by Northamptonshire County Council, offers organisations the chance to apply for grants of between £10,000 and £20,000 to fund community projects.

Applications must be submitted to the council by December 16 at noon and around 12 groups will be shortlisted before Christmas.

The shortlisted applicants will be invited to present their projects to a team of judges in February.

Entrants will have to demonstrate that the project would improve lives in a community, strengthen community ties and identify and positively address a recognised local issue.
