The office of the Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner has three funding schemes available this year which local groups can apply for. A total of £900,000 is available.
Community groups and organisations are invited to bid for funding that aims to build strong neighbourhoods, boost volunteering and empower young people.
There are three funding pots available:
– Commissioner’s Neighbourhood Fund (£200,000): Grants up to £1000 are available for projects aimed at reducing demand on policing services, building safer neighbourhoods, increasing neighbourliness and encouraging communities to help themselves and others.
– Active Citizen’s Fund (£200,000): Grants up to £5,000 for projects that encourage citizens to become involved in local community projects and organisations and supports volunteers.
– Youth Aspiration Fund (£500,000): Youth groups and organisations can apply for grants of up to £30,000 for projects aimed at empowering young people and developing their life skills.
More information about the three funding pots, including allocation criteria, and all the guidance needed about how to apply is on our website: www.gmpcc.org.uk/funding.
