Have you got a great Idea for your community?
Each year Trafford Housing Trust Community Panels administer £807,000 of funding grants on behalf of the Trust's Board.
Constituted groups who have a project that will benefit their community are encouraged to apply for this funding.
In order to qualify you must satisfy the vision of the Panel you are applying to.
The Community Panels will now accept funding applications all year round. However, they will be holding 3-4 funding decision sessions annually and we will inform you of when they are coming up.
Applications must be in by 12pm 28th September 2015 for decision making in late October.
If you have any questions and would like support with your Community Panel Application please feel free to attend our drop in sessions. The next funding drops in sessions are:
The next drop-in will be on Friday 2nd October 2015 at 1:30pm to 4:00pm at THT, Sale Point, 126-150 Washway Road, Sale, M33 6AG.
