Report of the Chief Grants Officer & Director of City Bridge Trust.
Members considered a report of the Chief Grants Officer and Director of City Bridge Trust relative to the Central Grants Programme (CGP) and Central Grants Unit (CGU) updates and next steps, including proposed amendments to the Sub-Committee’s Terms of Reference.
It was noted that the expanded Terms of Reference would reflect the oversight of the Benefits in Kind, and oversight of the general activities of the CGU which now extend beyond the CGP.
With respect to grants, Inspiring London Through Culture had received 16 applications following the recent deadline and applications were under review. A report is scheduled to be presented to the Community & Children’s Services Committee for grants under £3000.
A report will be brought to the next Sub-Committee meeting indicating how the Community Infrastructure Levy Neighbourhood Fund will be allocated. The report will outline the processes and reporting framework to the Committee.
The proposed extended Terms of Reference will be brought to the next Finance Committee meeting on 18 February 2020 for agreement.
RESOVED, that Members –
1. note the CGP an CGU progress update report; and,
2. recommend to the Finance Committee the proposed changes to the Sub-Committee’s Terms of Reference.
