TORRIDGE District Council has announced that the 2009/2010 Councillor Community Grants Scheme is now open for applications.

Voluntary or community groups serving residents in the Torridge area are eligible and are encouraged to apply for this grant.

The Councillor Community Grants Scheme will enable councillors to support projects benefiting residents in their wards, and each councillor has been allocated a budget of �2,000.

Torridge District Council Leader James Morrish said: "The scheme will enable councillors to support local groups within their communities even more, and to become more involved with local projects at a grass roots level."

Councillors are able to join up with other ward councillors to support a wider project, and can offer up to 100 per cent of the total project costs. Councillors may choose to award the whole of their �2,000 budget to one project, or break the fund down into smaller grants to a number of different projects.
