Community Planning Funding Opportunity for Food Poverty Initiatives

You may be aware that the Poverty Working Group under action 3.7 in the Community Plan FO 2030 have been working hard to establish enhanced support for projects in the District  working to address food poverty. 

The Poverty Working Group managed to secure £25,000 seed funding from the Council and PHA to enhance projects/ interventions in the district working to address increased demand for support services in relation to food poverty. 

The application for funding process is now open from 12 Noon today, 17th December until  4.00pm 14th January 2020

Please see attached and a direct link to the Council web page to all the relevant documents.

These include: 

(1) Guidance Notes
(2) Application Form

All documents are attached as ‘FINAL’ copies and pdf’d (except application form) for PHA to upload/ or any other SPB partner to their web sites.

Also attached is the ‘blurb used on the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council web page and social media updates will be based on same content ; albeit a lot less information. 

We would greatly appreciate your support to get the right applicants to apply for this much needed funding and if you could advertise this on web sites or social media platforms that would be much appreciated. 

We are delighted to end the year demonstrating collaborative practice and partnership working in practice.
