Funding Alert! Lee Green Assembly Councillors’ Discretionary Fund

 

Lee Green Assembly is inviting applications to its Councillors’ Discretionary Fund. The total fund available to bid from is £2,500. Groups and organisations in Lee Green can apply for up to £500 for community activities or projects of a one-off nature.

The fund is awarded at your local councillors’ discretion, but in keeping with Lee Green’s tradition, it will be processed through the Assembly Coordinating Committee and voted on by the Assembly at their meeting on 1st of October 2019.

The total amount you can bid for each project will be capped at £500. Bids for less than £500 will mean more money is available to a wider range of groups. In some special cases, where an organisation can clearly demonstrate that the project is undeliverable on £500, they can apply for slightly more. This will be considered on an individual basis. 

Because of the limited amounts for which groups can apply, the process for assessing and monitoring bids will be less complex than normal. Successful groups will nevertheless be expected to report back to the Assembly on completion of their project.
