A community grant scheme that has given out more than £60,000 to organisations and groups across Haverhill has launched its final round of money available.
The funding programme run by ONE Haverhill Partnership has provided vital funds for a number of worthwhile groups in the town while also allowing new projects to start up.
The last pot of money, provided by St Edmundsbury Borough Council, has now been made available with organisations invited to apply for a grant of up to £5,000 before the deadline of Friday 23 September.
Health-based initiatives, sports group and art and culture programmes have all been supported since the scheme was launched in 2012.
Henry Wilson, project director from Reach Community Projects, which exists to reduce poverty, increase aspirations and set people on the pathway to achieving their full potential, said:
“The grants are up to £5,000 which is a significant amount of money. They are a great platform to enable local groups to launch new projects and initiatives.”
Groups can apply for up to £5,000 with the final decision made by a special committee formed by members of ONE Haverhill Partnership.
Grant application forms can be downloaded from the community grants page and sent to;
ONE Haverhill Grants Scheme,
Haverhill Town Council,
Haverhill Arts Centre,
Suffolk. CB9 8AR

“We are very proud of the impact we have been able to make through the community grants scheme.
“They have made a significant difference to organisations and groups in the town and have therefore made Haverhill a better place to live and work.
“In the latest round of grants, we want applicants to prove that their project falls within the priorities of ONE Haverhill Partnership – namely improving employability skills or wellbeing or reducing crime and antisocial behaviour.
“If your project fulfils that criteria, I urge you to apply for a grant today or get in touch and find out how we can help.”
