Welsh Government launches small grants fund to tackle poverty
A NEW small grant fund that aims to tackle poverty has been announced by the Minister for Local Government and Communities, Carl Sargeant.
From April, funding totalling £3.8 million a year will be available to organisations across Wales from the Tackling Poverty Small Grants Fund.
The new Fund incorporates the Communities First Trust Fund and the small grants scheme that was previously available via the Community Facilities and Activities Programme (CFAP).
The minister said: "This new fund providing grants of up to £3,000 a year will retain the best features of both previous schemes but will be much more clearly aligned to current Welsh Government priorities.
