Report of the Managing Director of Bridge House Estates and Chief Charities Officer.
The Sub-Committee received a report of the Managing Director of Bridge House Estates and Chief Charities Officer relative to the Central Grants Programme Annual Report which provided an update on the Central Grants Programme (CPG) and the outcomes of the four CGP grant programmes delivered in 2020/21.
Jack Joslin (Head of the Central Grants Unit) advised the Sub-Committee that, like all City Corporation departments, the Central Grants Unit (CGU) had had to adapt to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic over the past year. Whilst operating in difficult circumstances, the CGP had continued to provide funding for a range of projects to support communities, green space management and cultural activity. It was noted that the CGP was continuing to role-model best practice in grant making and worked collaboratively across the organisation to ensure that the grants awarded had the maximum impact.
RESOLVED, that the Central Grants Programme Annual Report be noted.
