A new funding opportunity has launched for individuals, businesses and communities in delivering sustainable yet innovative solutions to address some of the economic, social and environmental challenges facing rural areas in Ceredigion.
The Cynnal y Cardi Fund opened on Thursday, 28 September 2023.
The UK Shared Prosperity Fund is delivered by Cynnal y Cardi, a grant scheme administered by Ceredigion County Council to deliver activity in Ceredigion across two of the Investment Priorities: Communities & Place and Supporting Local Business.
Within each of these Investment Priorities, key local priorities (referred to as interventions) have been identified. These are outlined in the Mid Wales UKSPF Regional Investment Plan together with the challenges and opportunities facing the region and the associated outputs and outcomes that UK Government are looking for projects to achieve.
The Cynnal y Cardi Community Development and Support Fund is designed to provide opportunities for organisations to deliver services or working with rural communities to pilot new ways of working to trial ideas that tackle issues aligned with key priorities; strengthen and support local communities, building pride in place whilst supporting the local economy and creating safe green spaces, a resilient, healthy and vibrant economic neighbourhood.
These measures can be focused on in many ways; improvements to existing sites and areas, climate change, visitors experience, creative industries sector, feasibility studies, succession planning, community measures to combat the cost of living and investment for improving digital infrastructure within local communities.
Support for digital exploitation within the sector, feasibility work, funding for strategic commissioning and the creation of hubs within our communities as to enable business owners to share good practise and work collaboratively.
The closing date for applications is 11:59pm on Tuesday, 31 October 2023.
