Covid-19 Recovery Small Grants Fund - Open Now!

Small groups can apply now for a grant of up to £500

 

Community groups in Inverclyde are invited to apply for a grant of up to £500 through the Inverclyde Covid-19 Recovery Small Grants Fund. CVS Inverclyde are delivering these grants on behalf of Inverclyde Council to support small groups most likely adversely affected by the impact of the pandemic and experiencing continued disadvantage.

 

If your community group has a bank account in its own name, you can apply with the priority of “helping to address the impacts associated with extended periods of isolation and lack of participation in normal activities caused by the pandemic”. There is a total of £10,000 available to be shared by projects for children, young people and adults living in Inverclyde, who provide opportunities for people to reconnect with peers in their community.

 

Eligible activities that may be funded by the grant include:

 

  • Covering increased costs to deliver support
  • Venue and catering costs
  • Small pieces of equipment
  • One-off events
  • Administration costs
  • Marketing
  • Additional travel costs for staff/volunteers to deliver services
  • Health and safety costs incurred to deliver support safely and meet Covid-19 regulations
  • Capacity building or training

Please note the grant cannot be used for political or religious campaigning.

Projects should be delivered by 31st March 2020.
