Report of the Chief Grants Officer and Director of City Bridge Trust (CGO).
Members received a report of the Chief Grants Officer and Director of CBT relative to the Central Grants Unit Update. It was noted that the pandemic had impacted the grants, both in terms of applications received and funds available, as well as having to take into consideration the safety of events. The Head of CGU summarised the various programmes within the CGP and the NCILF Programme Manager provided a verbal update on the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), which had progressed well since it launched around the time of the Sub-Committee’s previous meeting. The CIL officer panel, which plays a role in the selection process, had been diversified following an equality and diversity exercise.
The sum of the funds available was approximately £6.2M, without a time-limit on dispersal.
RESOLVED, that Members –
1. note the CGP and CGU progress report update; and,
2. note the budget reduction to the City’s Cash elements of the CGP.
