In addition to projects focussing on Inclusive Growth, Reducing inequality and Strong and Sustainable Neighbourhoods, covered by the criteria detailed below, we also want to support projects tackling the impact of Covid-19 in their communities.
This funding aims to resource a range of groups including local food banks and those working to strengthen food supply and plan to mitigate anticipated challenges.
This could be around information sharing, signposting and logistical matters eg. liaising with supermarkets to acquire surplus foods, appropriate storage for fresh and frozen produce, transport for distribution to groups / home food deliveries.
For these projects, match funding levels and expected crowd contribution will be relaxed.
