COMMUNITY groups across Bromsgrove district are being reminded they do not have long left to apply for the latest round of New Homes Bonus funding.
Organisations can bid for cash for projects in areas affected by new housing.
Bromsgrove District Council has allocated £79,000 for the grants from the money it receives from the Government for the first few years after new homes are built.
The final deadline for the New Homes Bonus (NHB) Community Grants Scheme is June 15 but anyone intending to have their bids reviewed by officers prior to submission, which can help with the process, will need to submit them by Tuesday, May 29.
There are two tiers of grants are available – smaller grants for up to £1,500 and larger grants for up to £15,800.
In previous years local groups have used larger and smaller grants from the scheme to help provide vehicles, sports facilities and equipment, repairs and maintenance, and more.
Details including application forms and timelines can be found at www.bromsgrove.gov.uk/nhb, or email NHBGrants@bromsgrove.gov.uk to enquire.
