Building grants for community

GROUPS are being invited to bid for cash from Derbyshire County Council’s new £1m Community Building Grant fund.

Applications can be made for one-off capital grants, of £10,000 to £250,000, for building projects and play or sports facilities which will be able use for at least 10 years.

Priority will be given to groups who have already raised their own funds towards their project, can be started by December 2013 and can support future running costs.

To find out more go to www.derbyshire.gov.uk/build or call 08456 058 058 or 01629 533190.
