Calling all Community Groups in Hebden Royd
Hebden Royd Town Council wants to hear from community groups in need of grant funding for projects.
The Council currently has £60,000 in its annual budget which it hopes will benefit as wide a range of groups as possible.
This year, members of the Community Funding Committee will be focussing on the groups and projects which need their help most in the current economic downturn.
This includes projects for children and young people, the elderly and those which help residents on low incomes or in social need.
Applications which bring economic benefit to Hebden Royd and boost its profile will also be considered.
Coun Susan Press, Chair of the Community Funding Committee, said: "We do not have a huge amount of money but we want to ensure that the grant budget we do have is distributed fairly and reflects the real diversity of our community and that funding is allocated right across the board from projects helping children and young people to the elderly."
"Every application is considered carefully and if people want to find out how to go about applying to us for grants we are there to help."
Last year, the list of recipients of grant funding from HRTC included Mytholmroyd Community Association, Treesponsibility, the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival and the Hand Made Parade, which is one of our biggest community success stories in recent years.
Anyone wishing to find out more about how to apply for grant funding from Hebden Royd Town Council should contact Town Clerk Jason Boom on 01422 842181 or e-mail Jason@hebdenroyd.org.uk. The deadline for the next round of applications is 12 noon on Tuesday 6th September 2011.
