Kirklees Council are providing £500k of Recovery Grants for voluntary and community organisations who have been affected by national lockdowns and local restrictions.
Grants of up to £20k are available now to help our vital community buildings in local places across Kirklees recover from Covid-19.
Supporting community buildings that really matter to local people
Community organisations are vital for our local economy and for people’s wellbeing – creating jobs, delivering services, connecting people in our neighbourhoods and providing activities that people and communities really value. We know this continues to be a difficult time for local organisations who have been unable to open community buildings as usual.
Voluntary and community organisations in Kirklees who own or rent buildings in our local places can apply for a grant to recover lost income due to Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions.
Who can apply?
The Community Buildings Recovery Grant is available for voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations who:
- work in (and are based in) Kirklees
- were open as usual before the Covid-19 restrictions
- own or rent a non-residential property (this could include a space within a building that you pay costs for, or a building you own and have continued to pay costs for).
- have been legally required to close or have been significantly impacted by lockdowns and local restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
