The Committee received a report of the CGO advising Members of funds recommended for approval for amounts between £50,000 and £250,000, including strategic initiatives.
The CGO introduced the grants recommended and addressed several points for Members. The CGO confirmed the recommendation that Hackney Council for Voluntary Service be awarded two separate grants, as they were for two distinct applications. The CGO added that officers wished to add a condition to Item 8r, that the Local Giving Scheme integrate into the Local Giving network of organisations. The CGO then confirmed that the recommendation for EcoACTIVE at Item 8p was for £70,000, with £20,000 apportioned to the final year rather than £25,000 as stated.
In response to a query from a Member, the CGO explained that occasionally the amount recommended was higher than requested, often because following assessment, officers felt that organisations required more funding than they had requested.
RESOLVED – That the Committee receive the report and consider the recommended grants for amounts between £50,000 and £250,000 at Item 8, with the above amendments.
