Bristol Parks Forum has submitted six applications for grants to run projects during Bristol’s Green Capital year in 2015. This is in addition to applications made by park groups and others for events and projects in their parks and neighbourhoods.
There are three different grant streams available from www.bristol2015.co.uk depending on the size of the projects. The Parks Forum has applied for strategic grants which are for projects from £25k – £50k.
Applications for the strategic grants have now closed, but there is still time to apply for smaller grants. The smallest grants for local initiatives and events are being distributed through the Neighbourhood Partnerships which each have an initial £10,000 to allocate to projects in their area. Each Partnership has its own closing dates and some have passed but there is more money to be allocated so there may be a second round of applications in some areas.
For grants of up to £10,000 there is The Bristol 2015 Small Grants Fund which is being administered by Quartet. The first closing date for this has passed but there are three further rounds with dealines in 2015:
January 5th, April 6th and July 1st.
There is lots of other information on the Bristol 2015 website and more will be added as 2015 approaches, including details of the many events that are planned including those funded by these grants.
