£150,000 for community projects

The Community Development Foundation has announced this morning that over £150,000 of funding has been made available across 4 wards in Stoke-on-Trent.

Burslem North, Burslem South & Fenton each get £33,910 while Hanley West and Shelton gets £50,865.

The funding is to be used to give community projects grants of between £250 & £2,500 and will be awarded by local community panels which means local people will get a say in how the funds are used in their areas.

The funding is a matched fund programme, which means that every £1 provided in funding must be matched by a similar amount of in-kind donations (this means donations of cash, services, free products or volunteer time).
