A variety of projects across North Northamptonshire are set to benefit from grant funding totalling £100,000.

Projects that will benefit the community, which include improvements to facilities and new sports equipment, will now receive grants of up £5,000 from North Northamptonshire Council’s (NNC) Shared Prosperity Fund allocation.

In February, NNC encouraged community groups and projects to apply for funding via the council’s Community Grants Programme, following agreement to extend the existing scheme and utilise £100,000 of Shared Prosperity Funding.

More than 20 organisations were successful with their bids and will now be able to deliver projects to improve lives for local residents.

There was strong demand for funding with a lot of great ideas and I am pleased that more than 20 projects across a variety of themes will benefit. There will be further opportunities for grants in the future, so I would encourage communities to think about any projects or groups that might benefit in preparation for applying for grants.Cllr David Brackenbury, the council’s Executive Member for Growth and Regeneration
We have always wanted to ensure that North Northants’ allocation of Shared Prosperity Funding helps communities, including those who need it most to deliver plans which will benefit the local area, so it is great that these projects will receive grants of up to £5,000.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council

Details of future schemes will be promoted through NNC channels. 

This project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
