Erewash Borough Council is once again offering help towards worthy causes across the borough through its Community Grants Scheme.
Voluntary groups and organisations are being encouraged to apply now for up to £2,000 and the council is particularly keen to support projects and initiatives that are helping the local community.
The grants scheme has helped hundreds of local groups and sporting organisations over the years and the release of the latest funds is to support all the vital charity and voluntary work that is going on right now in the area.
Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Community Engagement, Councillor Val Clare, says:
“Grants are awarded for many projects that help Erewash and in the past funds have been released to community groups, pre-school groups, churches, village halls and organisations that offer support in countless ways to both the young and old. This year in particular has seen the need for help increase as communities rally together to provide care and assistance for those who may be struggling due the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.”
The council wants to hear from as many organisations as possible ahead of the closing deadline of 5.30pm Wednesday 16 December 2020.

EBC’s Community Grants Scheme is unable to provide funding to any community group that has received a grant award within the last 12 months.
