More than £9,000 in grant funding has been awarded to Haverhill projects by ONE Haverhill.
Community groups and organisations in Haverhill that needed funding towards projects which improve the quality of life for people in the town were invited to submit their applications for a ONE Haverhill grant.
Groups could apply for up to £5,000 from a special grant pot, made available to ONE Haverhill by St Edmundsbury Borough Council, to fund projects that are complimentary to the Haverhill Community Budget Plan priorities.
This is the fourth round of grants ONE Haverhill has awarded since 2012.
Applications were considered from groups that could demonstrate that the funding will make a real difference to the people of Haverhill, have clear objectives and plans for the project and how they will measure its effectiveness.
Clair Harvey, chairman of the ONE Haverhill grants panel, said: “We received 13 applications in this round requesting funding for local community projects.
“The grants panel had some difficult decisions to make but granted a total of £9,770 as was allocated in this round to eight applicants.
“All of the grants are aligned to the Haverhill Community Budget priorities in that they directly provide activities for young people or to improve the physical environment of the town.
“Our congratulations to all of them.”
