The Parish Council can, at it’s discretion award grants to suitable organisations that operate within the Parish.
The following are the current conditions for these grants.
Applications are invited from organisations within the Parish of Friskney and are available twice yearly, with allocations made at the March and September meetings of the Parish Council.
Funds are not available to individuals or profit - making businesses.
The Parish Council reserves the right to ask for and inspect relevant financial information pertaining to the grant application.
The Parish Council will use its’ discretion to decide on the allocation of grants and does not commit to expend all or any of the sum identified as available.
The Parish Council expects organisations to fund their own individual needs and consideration to the allocations of a grant will only be given where there is evidence of, or perception that, such organisations are practising self - help or that their need is exceptional.
The organisation must be able, and willing to demonstrate viability.
Where grants are allocated for the purchase of capital items capable of being resold, then the Parish Council will retain a proportionate interest in that item. If the item is sold, or the organisation ceases to function the Parish Council will expect a return of the monies used to purchase that item corresponding to the original proportion of it’s contribution.
eg: The Parish Council grants £200 towards the purchase of an item the total cost of which is £1000, if at a subsequent sale that item raised £500 the Parish Council would expect £100 to be returned to it.
If for any reason the grant is not used at all for the purpose for which the grant was given, then the entire grant must be returned to the Parish Council.
Only in exceptional circumstances will grants be available to an organisation in consecutive years.
In any event the parish reserves the right to vary the conditions which may apply.
