Applications for Welsh fund leap after £1m injection
The Wales Council for Voluntary Action received the same number of applications for a community grants fund in a month as it usually does in a year after the Welsh Assembly Government announced an extra £1m in funding last December.
“This compares with an average of 100 a month over the past year,” said Tessa White, grants manager at the WCVA.
More than 1,400 grants, totalling £3.9m, were distributed in the last financial year. Next year’s budget is £3.2m.
