Groups and organisations in South Leeds have until 15th March to apply for a share of a £7,000 community funding pot.
Leeds Federated Housing Association’s Resident Amenity Fund still has £7,000 to award from its 2012/2013 pot, and community groups or individuals can apply for a portion of up to £2,000 to support their projects.
The fund is open to all residents, not just Leeds Fed’s tenants, as long as applicants can show that the project or initiative will benefit the housing association’s tenants and the communities in which they live.
Leeds Fed owns and manages 4,000 homes across Leeds, Wakefield and Harrogate, including 1,000 in South Leeds. Their Resident Amenity Fund is in its third year and has giving out more than £25,000 to local groups and organisations so far.
It has supported many local projects including community gardens, a martial arts group, community centres and a community radio station.
For more details about the fund and how to apply contact Joanne Gardner, customer involvement manager on 0113 386 1030, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call into the Leeds Fed reception.
