To consider the options for the future
Community Grants process.
That the Cabinet approves:
a) the funding intentions and associated outcomes for the future programme as outlined in section 5 of report HCS/24.
b) the process for allocating funding as outlined in section 5 of report HCS/24.
c) the process for approving grant allocations and appeals process in 2021/22 and 2022/23 as outlined in section 5 of report HCS/24.
Reasons for the Recommendations
The proposed transfer will reduce the budget gap in the General Fund as laid out in the Budget Strategy. The recommendations support the Council to achieve a balanced budget position for 2021/22 onwards whilst retaining sufficient revenue funds to deliver a high quality outcome focused commissioning and small grants programme that can better respond to our community’s needs.
They also take into account the needs of the organisations that we currently fund and allow us to support them through a transition period, as appropriate to their individual circumstance.
