Micro grants for grassroots organisations giving support during pandemic

Posted on: February 11, 2021

Micro grants up to £500 are now available for groups helping communities through the pandemic to improve their communications and technology.

The scheme was launched last week with £50,000 from the Covid-19 funding Essex County Council has received from Government to support people and businesses affected by the pandemic.

Grassroots organisations such as food banks, community kitchens and clothes banks can apply for the grants through Essex Association of Local Councils. They can use the grants to advertise and promote what they are doing and improve their online presence.

Interested groups can apply before 31 March 2021 at www.ealc.gov.uk/micro-grant-fund/
