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.

The council wants to hear from as many organisations as possible ahead of the closing deadline of 5pm on Thursday 1 July 2021.

Full details of the scheme and how to apply, can be found on the community grants page. Please also read the accompanying EBC Community Grants Funding Policy.

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.
