Community projects invited to apply for council funding

PUBLISHED: 09:00 27 January 2018


Applications for the TAP fund are being accepted until February 28.

North Devon Council (NDC) is inviting organisations to apply for funding through its Town and Parish (TAP) Fund.

The council is accepting applications for the fund until February 28, with rewards served on a first-come, first served basis.

Funding can be accepted for projects that will benefit residents in at least two parishes and meet some identified needs of the community.

NDC’s executive member responsible for leisure and culture, Councillor Dick Jones, said: “It’s great that through schemes such as the TAP fund we can support local projects and groups across the district to help them in the valuable work that they do for our communities.

“If you have a charity that you think might benefit from TAP funding, information about the fund and other grants that are available, is on our website.”

North Devon Council works with Devon County Council to allocate money from the TAP fund. The councils make available £1.10p per electorate, of which £1 is given by Devon County Council and 10p from North Devon Council.

Earlier this month, North Devon Council considered applications for the ‘strategic’ TAP fund, created from the underspend of the fund from the previous financial year.

Over and Above’s North Devon Cancer and Wellbeing Centre, Headway North Devon and Vista Wellbeing CIC all received cash boosts from the fund.

Over and Above received £2,155 towards counselling couches, Headway received £1,160, and Vista Wellbeing received £4392 towards start-up costs.
