The detailed list is appended in the further guidance.
Applications are welcomed from individuals, voluntary groups and local businesses or not-for profit organisations who may be seeking financial support for capital or limited projects. However 100% grants are not normally supported as some contribution to the cost of the project is expected.
Applications from voluntary groups, local businesses or not-for-profit organisations must be accompanied by their most recent annual financial statement and a copy of their constitution or equivalent UNLESS this has been submitted with a previous application. Applications for Capital projects must be accompanied by at least two estimates for the proposal
