£3m in grants to tackle inequality

Applications opened this week for the first round of the Government's £3m Community Grants Plus programme, aimed at organisations that can prove they are working to tackle inequality and discrimination.

The programme will distribute £1m a year over three years as part of the Home Office's Connecting Communities Plus programme. Grants of up to £12,000 are available.

An advisory body, the Community Development Foundation, will administer the fund. Applicants must meet one of four criteria: that they improve the experience of public services among black and ethnic minorities, boost their confidence in the fairness of service delivery, tackle racism and extremism and bring different race and faith communities together.
