Trafford Housing Trust Community Panel Funding

Local organisations in Trafford seeking to make a positive difference to their communities are being given another opportunity to bid for their share of a £635,000 funding pot to get worthwhile projects off the ground. Trafford Housing Trust's five Community Panels will assess applications from local, non-profit making groups, and provide funding to those initiatives judged to deliver the greatest community benefits. There are five panels, each with £127,000 to allocate over the course of the 2013/14 financial year. The panels, made up of local tenants and residents, represent Altrincham, Old Trafford, Sale, Stretford and Urmston. Applications for the first round of funding closed in May, with more than 80 grants made, but a second window of opportunity has now opened - with hopeful groups invited to submit their applications by September 30. Organisations can apply for grants ranging from £200 to several thousand pounds. There is no maximum amount, although awards above £10,000 are rare.
