Increase funding to Community Chest Grants by £21,894.72

At the Meeting of the Grants Advisory Committee on 29 April 2022, it was proposed that the amount of Community Chest funding available be raised.  The Lead Member for Finance was present.  With consideration to the number of Queen’s Platinum Jubilee applications to the scheme, the Committee (in consultation with the Lead Member for Finance) was in favour.  It was suggested that the funding available for Community Chest Grants Scheme be increased by £21,894.72 from £61,768.83 to £83,663.55. Alternative existing and available communities funding will be used to cover the increase in Community Chest due to the Jubilee related grants.
