The Government Equalities Office has opened the latest round of the Women’s Vote Centenary small grant scheme.
The Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme is a £1.5 million government fund that will support local and community groups across England in celebrating the centenary of women gaining the right to vote.
The grant scheme has two types of funds.
Approximately 150 Small Grants of between £300 to £2,000 will be made to grassroots projects to run small-scale events and activities to celebrate the centenary of women gaining the vote. The fund will close to applications on the 14th September 2018.
Up to 30 Large Grants of between £2,000 and £125,000 will also be made to fund projects that increase the understanding of, and engagement with, democracy, and encourage women to participate in public life.
The deadline for applications for Small Grants is 16th October 2018. (The large grants programme is currently closed for applications.)
