Birmingham City Council has asked us to share information about its Be Bold Local Element CIL Small Grants Fund. This is a small grants fund for Birmingham community organisations. You must apply by Wednesday 19 October.
Who is the Be Bold Local Element CIL Small Grants Fund for?
The Be Bold Local Element CIL Small Grants Fund is for established Birmingham ward-based community groups and organisations who have:
- Existing trusted relationships with residents and stakeholders
- A deep understanding of local priorities.
Also, your group’s proposed activities must be linked to the priorities in the ward plan for your Birmingham neighbourhood.
What does CIL stand for?
Community infrastructure levy – a charge made by local authorities on new developments in a ward. It is then spent on improving the infrastructure within that ward. The money generated by a CIL differs from ward to ward, based on the type and size of development(s).
What are ward plans?
Birmingham is divided into 69 ‘wards’ (neighbourhoods). Each ward must have a ward plan, which details ward priorities.
You can find ward plans on the ward plans and priorities page of the Birmingham City Council website. If you have questions about the ward plans, please contact the NDSU team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
How much can my group apply for?
The most you can apply for from the Be Bold Local Element CIL Small Grants Fund is generally £2000. It is £1000 in North Edgbaston. Please see the documents below for details.
