Last financial year my Priority Fund helped across the whole of the Faringdon Division. This is the third financial year that this particular fund has run and I hope that the fund will help more than ever.
The 2020/21 Councillor Priority Fund (CPF) is now live and each councillor has been given £15k to allocate to local causes. To help support the inspiring local response to the current crises across the county, CPF can be used towards projects to support the immediate Covid-19 response and help communities through the recovery. We will prioritise those applications for processing.
Please direct interested parties to our public website, where they can find further information and the application form. For the time being all applications must be sent electronically to the Councillor Priority Fund email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). Electronic signatures on the forms will be accepted. Please do not send paper application forms to the office as staff are currently working from home and we are unable to process them. We know that little pots of money can go a long way. To help the team easily identify COVID-19 bids, please ensure applications are clearly marked as supporting a COVID-19 project.
Non COVID-19 related applications may take longer to process and we thank you for your patience.
I look forward to hearing from you, keep well and safe,
