Twenty voluntary and community groups across Wales will share£5.6m for community capacity building and community regeneration initiatives, assembly minister for local government, finance and communities Edwina Hart announced yesterday.
This funding is 'top sliced' from the national assembly's local regeneration fund for direct support to the voluntary and community sector.
Mrs Hart said: 'I am pleased to announce these successful bids to support the voluntary and community sector. Most of the bids I have approved are for general grant schemes which will provide revenue support that voluntary and community organisations can access to undertake local projects that will benefit and involve local communities.'
Further funding has been earmarked for the 'Working Together Towards a Better Quality of Life' project in Denbighshire and another two bids, 'Bridgend Valleys Intermediate Labour Market Initiative' and 'Sustainable Estates and Mining Villages in Caerphilly'. Any LRF support for these projects is subject to them attracting Objective 1 support.
