Voluntary Organisations: Grants

Volume 705: debated on Wednesday 19 November 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the minimum income or turnover that a charity or voluntary group must have in order to be eligible to bid for Empowerment Fund grants. [HL6352]

Having ensured that they meet all the relevant criteria specified by the fund, applicants should have a minimum income of £170,000 pa. However, third sector organisations with a lower income may still be able to apply through a partnership where the lead applicant meets all the necessary criteria.
