Funding to Enhance Community Facilities
Under the Sita Trust’s Enhancing Communities Programme Core Fund, grants of up to £60,000 are available to not for profit organisations, community groups, schools, parish councils, local authorities and charities for projects that make physical improvements to community facilities and historic buildings / structures. SITA will accept applications from projects which are within 3 miles of qualifying SITA UK waste processing sites.
Grants of up to £20,000 are also available through their Fast Track Fund for projects with an overall cost of no more than £40,000. Projects on school or pre-school sites where the facilities will primarily benefit the school are not eligible. However, an application may be considered from a school if it can be clearly demonstrated that the wider community has significant opportunities to use the facility and the facility is run by an organisation that is separate from the school (although the school may be represented); and access to the facility for community use must be via an entrance that is separate from the school.
The next closing date for applications is 10 am on the 13th October for the Fast Track Fund and 5 pm on the 25th November 2013 for the Core Fund.
