Applications open for Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner's community funding scheme
Applications open today for a funding scheme rewarding community groups which work to improve the lives of members of the public.
The Police and Crime Commissioner’s Community Fund is now open to bids from individuals, communities and businesses across Hertfordshire.
The Commissioner, David Lloyd, has set aside £100,000 to be shared between schemes and projects that focus on the needs of the public, particularly victims of crime.
He would also like applications from organisations that ensure offenders pay back the cost of their crime, and ones which enhance community safety.
This is the second round of funding, with £150,000 being shared between 17 community projects last month.
Commissioner Lloyd said: “I was delighted with the response the fund generated during the first tranche of bidding, which showed that people across the county really want to get involved to help make our communities safer.
“Once again, we would like to hear about projects and schemes from those who are seeking small-scale purchases that will improve communities to big ideas needing match funding.”
Among the 17 schemes that were successful in obtaining funding during the last bidding process was Norwood, which received £21,146 for crime, abuse and personal safety awareness courses for people with learning difficulties in Hertsmere.
Radlett Road Residents’ Association Table Tennis Club received £2,000 for positive activities for young people aged eight to 17 years from a local estate.
Bids should be submitted by November 11.
