Groups will be notified in April with project to starting from May 2022 onwards for a maximum 12 month period (projects must be completed by May 2023)
The Aims of the Fund
The Mercia Park Community Fund will give grants to projects for Round 4 that:
Help strengthen local communities (particularly their quality of life and life chances) within a 5-mile radius of the Mercia Park Development at Junction 11 M42.
Improve the natural environment within a 5-mile radius of the Mercia Park Development at Junction 11 M42.
Priority will be given to:
- Organisations who can clearly demonstrate that they are addressing a need in the local community and offering localised support.
- Smaller charitable organisations that have limited access to larger funds.
Size of Grants
You can apply for:
Up to £5,000 for a 12-month project.
In exceptional circumstances, larger grant amounts of up to £10,000 may be considered, for a project that the group can evidence clearly that they have applied to a variety of other funds and grants for match funding and the project could not be completed without a higher budget. We would highly recommend that you call the grants team to discuss your project before completing an application for a higher amount.
