It has now been agreed, in association with Sport England, that the value of the maximum amount available in the Get Going community grants will be increased to £5000.
Councillor David Elvidge, portfolio holder for Community Involvement and the Voluntary Sector, said : "I am delighted that we are able to increase the size of the grants available. This is a perfectly logical step, creating the flexibility to be able to offer larger grants in the future, which we already know are much needed by many applicants.
"Larger grants will allow successful schemes to have more impact in Withernsea and will provide incentives for individuals and non-constituted groups to develop further, by formalising their structure and increasing the amount of funding they may apply for.
"They will also enable ideas and projects to progress from small beginnings to bigger outcomes. We look forward to working with Sport England and the local community in Withernsea on applications for larger grant amounts."
The amount of grant funding available will be dependent on the structure of the applicant:
The new, larger grants will be available from 31 March, 2022.
