Second round of funding to support local groups now open

Applications for this round of funding should be submitted by 7th Sept 2022
Colchester Borough Homes Community Initiative Fund 2021
Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) has launched the second round of its community fund for 2022 and encourages local groups who provide support to residents in Colchester to apply. 
The CBH Community Fund supports the local community by making small grants and awards to local charities and community groups throughout the borough. Groups can apply for funding throughout the year and the awards take place at regular intervals.
The Community Fund provides a total of £40,000 across three rounds of funding during the year and groups and charities in Colchester are encouraged to apply for a share. Applicants must demonstrate how their services and projects can offer support to CBH’s tenants and leaseholders with the cost-of-living crisis.
Last year’s funding saw a total of 48 organisations and projects benefit from the fund.

Colchester Borough Homes Chief Executive, Philip Sullivan, said: “We had an amazing response to our first round of funding and are delighted to have already provided support to 11 well-deserved local groups this year.
“Local groups offer a wide range of valuable support to communities and individuals across Colchester, and we would encourage any local group or charity to apply for some of this funding.
“We know that many residents are struggling to make ends meet, so we are particularly keen to invite applications from groups who will be able to support our most financially vulnerable tenants and others in our communities through the cost-of-living crisis.”
Along with the Community Fund, CBH actively supports and funds local organisations throughout the year. These partnerships provide tenants and leaseholders with the reassurance that support is always available for a variety of needs. Find out more here.
Applications for the second round of funding can be made by completing the form here or emailing, and should be submitted by 7 September 2022
