£15 million in grants for organisations in Essex
12:00pm Wednesday 14th August 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
MORE than £15 million has come to Essex in grants in just four months.
Since 1 April the Essex Funding Team has helped 14 organisations secure £15.6 million from bodies including the Big Lottery Fund and the European Union to support a range of projects.
The team, run by Essex County Council, provides expert help to charities, community groups, small businesses and other local authorities in putting together funding bids.
Organisations helped include Citizens Advice Bureaux and the Harwich Haven Authority.
Councillor Kevin Bentley, deputy leader of Essex County Council, said the funding already brought into the county was fantastic, especially in the tough economic climate.
