Eckington Parish Council - Grant Aid Application Form (v2.02)
A sum of money is allocated each year for the provision of grants to local groups. The Parish Council normally allocates Standard Grants of £50 or £100. You are invited to ask for a larger Non Standard Grant if your group has a special project in mind.
In applying for a grant you are asked to provide information to help the Parish Council make a decision such as: • Who you are • What you do • Who benefits
We also ask for financial information so that the Parish Council can be assured that it is spending public money wisely.
You can apply for a grant once in every twelve month period.
The Parish Council reserves the right to use information provided for publicity purposes excluding personal and financial details without prior consent.
6 to 9 months after you have been awarded a grant we will contact you so that you can let us know how the money has been spent and what impact it has made to your group and the residents of Eckington Parish.
In the past 12 months we have awarded the following grants • Wintergreen (set up costs) • Moss Valley Wildlife Group (removal of Himalayan Balsam) • Uti grit bin scheme (purchase of salt) • Marsh Lane TARA (event insurance)
and larger grants have been awarded to • Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centre (operating costs/outreach) • Citizens Advice Bureau (North East Derbyshire) (operating costs/outreach) • Marsh Lane Under 5s (operating costs) • Eckington Town Team (Christmas event and rent of town centre premises)
Your application will be considered by the Parish Council at its next appropriate meeting. You will be notified of the decision after the meeting. Should you wish to attend the Parish Council please contact the Clerk for details.
If your application is successful you will be invited to the next meeting of the Parish Council to receive your cheque.
