 Small Grants Scheme goes live

Ripon City Council is pleased to announce details of its Small Grants Scheme, which will be accepting applications from 1st September 2017.

As part of its 2017/18 budget the Council has £12,000 to allocate to Ripon based, not-for-profit, community organisations. It’s looking to fund as many different activities in the City as possible and projects must clearly benefit the people of Ripon.

Commenting on the scheme Councillor Pauline McHardy, Mayor of Ripon, said: “I’m delighted that this provides an opportunity for the Council to support a range of organisations that are trying to do good things for this City and that we can invest in Ripon to make it better for all.”

The Small Grants Scheme is designed to be an easy to access source of funding for local organisations. Organisations can apply for grants of up to £1,000 to be used for either capital or revenue expenses. The closing date for applications is 30th September 2017, with grants expected to be awarded in November 2017.

Prospective applicants need to read the Scheme’s guidance notes and criteria, then complete an application form. Both these documents will be available online at from 22nd August 2017.
