Government launches £3M grants programme

18 April 2006

All applicants will be expected to involve local people in the planning and implementation of activities.
The fund has four main priority areas:

  • Improving the experience black and ethnic minorities get from public services, specifically education, employment, health, housing and the criminal justice system
  • Increasing the confidence of people from black and ethnic minority backgrounds that public services are delivered in a fair and equitable way
  • Tackling racism and extremism
  • Bringing together communities from different races and faiths, and promoting a shared sense of belonging

All community led activities that meet one of the four priorities of the fund will be considered. Applications for the first round of grants must be received by 5 July and funding used by 31 March 2007.
