COVID-19 Councillor Priority fund

COVID-19 Councillor Priority Fund

Application form and guidance

The fund will be at the discretion of individual district councillors to award.

They each have £2,000 for the 2020-21 financial year. Applicants may apply for the maximum £2,000 but may be offered less than that requested, if the Councillor is approached by other good causes that are worthy of support.  This is a finite budget so early applications are recommended.

Applications must be received before 31 January 2021.

Activities which could be funded through this route include those organisations delivering food, supplies and medicines to the ‘shielded’ or those in vulnerable situations.

This fund could also be used to support organisations who deliver services to those whose circumstances make them more vulnerable from isolation - such as the homeless or those suffering from domestic abuse. It could also be used to support mental wellbeing projects during this time.

The fund is designed to be flexible to the needs of local areas.
