Derry City and Strabane District Council – Grant Aid Programme 2019/20 – Currently Open

 

The Community Support Fund

There will be one round of funding in this financial year. Groups must meet the Community Development Priorities. Groups must apply to one particular District Electoral Area (DEA). If you are applying for core costs, you will apply to the particular DEA where your organisation is based.

Applicants for project costs must indicate the DEA that at least 80% of the project beneficiaries are from. The fund will cover both project costs and/or core costs (excluding salaries/wages) to a maximum of £4,000. Groups may only submit one application.

 

The Good Relations Fund

There will be one round of funding in this financial year. The fund will cover both Project Costs or Core Costs to a maximum of £4000.

Groups who submit multiple applications can only have one successful application funded. Groups must apply to one particular District Electoral Area (DEA). If you are applying for core costs, you will apply to the particular DEA where your organisation is based.

Applicants for project costs must indicate the DEA that at least 80% of the project beneficiaries are from. Good Relations partnership projects can cross two DEAs, as long as the applicant organisation has secured a partner organisation in the secondary DEA.

You must make a choice for either Project or Core funding. Applications must score at least 60% to reach the threshold to be considered for funding. The purpose of Core funding is to contribute towards the group’s day to day running costs. Groups applying for core costs are expected to demonstrate clearly how the key day-to-day work of their organisation contributes to good relations outcomes. Funding is only available to groups with a base within the Council area.
