  3. Promote positive community cohesion stories and activities.

There is £30,000 available for each financial year 2017-18 and 2018-19, meaning a grant can be given for up to 18 months if needed. There is no minimum or maximum grant amount. There are two forms to use, a short form for application under £2,000 and a longer form for applications over £2,000.
