COMMUNITY GRANTS 2013/14
The Forest of Dean District Council offer not for profit voluntary and community groups - both constituted and non-constituted - the opportunity to apply for one off funding to enable the development of stronger and more cohesive communities. This approach is aimed at building the capacity of the community rather than directly delivering services. Projects should clearly be able to show that there is local value and leadership in them and demonstrate its importance to the community.
