Report of the Chief Grants Officer

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Members received a report of the Chief Grants Officer which provided an update on the Central Grants Programme (CGP), including: outcomes of the four CGP grant rounds delivered in 2018/19; a monitoring and evaluation update of the CGP; and, an outline of the next steps for 2018/19.

 

The Chief Grants Officer advised that it is expected that the CGP will spend its budget for 2018/19.

 

Members were informed that any underspends on other grant budgets outside the CGP and held within City’s Cash can be transferred to the CGU for equal allocation to the three City’s Cash funding theme.  This can be approved by delegated authority to the Town Clerk, in consultation with the Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Finance Committee.

 

With regards to the Enjoying Green Spaces programme, Members were informed that in 2017 there was a lack of take-up in the programme as the deadline was too early. Officers carried out workshops with individuals, communities and interested parties to develop capacity to create applications for grants. As a result, there has been an increase in applications in 2018. This has been a learning curve for officers unfamiliar with grant-giving.

 

Members were informed that the Chief Grants Unit (CGU) continues to monitor organisations which previously received funding from the City Corporation but are either no longer eligible under the new CGP or which may require assistance in framing suitable applications.

 

RESOLVED – That the sub-committee receive the report and note its contents.
