The Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT) York Committee are offering grant funding up to £10,000 to York charities and other voluntary and not-for-profit organisations. If your organisation can answer any of the following questions then this funding might be for you:
- Do you have an idea that could help to build and develop strong empowered communities without poverty or isolation in York?
- Can you help to increase and better co-ordinate access to benefits advice, debt advice, support with developing financial capability, and information and advocacy for those in or at risk of poverty?
- Are you involved in a local community-based activity to prevent and reduce isolation where poverty is a contributing factor or barrier?
The JRHT York Committee welcomes discussions about potential project ideas and encourages you to contact them prior to submitting an application. Please contact Helen Robinson on 01904 615939 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more. Further details on how to apply can also be accessed via the following website.
Please note the next deadline for small grant applications is 2.00pm on Wednesday 4th December 2019. All applications received by this deadline will be considered within the York Committee meeting in late February 2020, and applicants should expect to receive notification of the decision towards the end of February 2020.
