Grants are now available for charity organisations
COMMUNITY groups are being encouraged to apply for the second round of funding from Argyll and Bute Council’s third sector grants for 2016/17.
A total of £ 5,000 is available and the closing date for applications is Monday June 13. A decision will be made at the area committee in August.
The third sector grants programme is aimed at supporting communities and vulnerable people, and helping to kick start new projects and events.
Councillor Robin Currie said: ‘The council is particularly keen to encourage new groups with fresh ideas. Advice and support on funding is available from the council’s community development and social enterprise teams. I would encourage people to make the most of this funding opportunity and get their application forms returned as soon as possible.’
