£250,000 has been made available for this funding round.
Each Theme has a lower limit of £500 and an upper limit of £15,000.
Groups can apply under both themes simultaneously and therefore have the potential to be awarded a total of £30,000 of funding, although such awards are likely to be in exceptional circumstances.

Applicants organisation must be based in and active in meeting needs in one or more of the following areas:
Scarborough and Whitby District
the North York Moors National Park

National charities or those based outside of the above areas are unlikely to be considered eligible unless they are able to demonstrate a longstanding connection to the area and substantial evidence of local activity and involvement.
This grant programme is designed to support the local voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. This means that applicants will be expected to be one of the following:
Small unregistered charity with a Management Committee and Constitution

Social enterprise including Community Interest Companies
Other not-for-profit structures will be considered where there are appropriate safeguards in place.
Groups must have a bank account in the name of the organisation with two or more unrelated signatories.
