To be eligible to apply community groups must have:
· A formal constitution
· A dedicated bank account in the name of the group
· The bank account must have two signatories that are unrelated
Community groups must be located within South Kesteven. However, national charities are able to apply providing the project they are proposing is delivered entirely within the district and is of direct benefit to the community in which it is carried out.
As long as the application criteria are met, there is no limit on the number of applications which an organisation may submit. However, each project must be submitted as a separate application and will be considered independently.
There is no required waiting time between applications.
Applications to the fund will not be prejudiced by previously unsuccessful applications from the same organisation.
There are no fixed deadlines for applications. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the annual allocation of funding is committed.
To apply for the South Kesteven Prosperity Fund all projects must take place within South Kesteven and provide public benefit, which could be targeted at a specific demographic, or the community as a whole.
