£6.4 million boost for Welsh communities
Launched in 2002, CFAP is a grant scheme available to community or voluntary organisations to help support the creation of new facilities and services. In this funding round, 48 projects across Wales have been awarded grants totalling £6.413m. CFAP has previously funded 660 projects with a total of £64 million funding.
Deputy Minister Leighton Andrews said:
“The Community Facilities and Activities Programme can make a real, tangible difference to community and voluntary groups at grass roots level. Grants can range from a few thousand pounds to install a new heating system to much larger grants of several hundreds of thousands of pounds to build new facilities.
“Many of the projects from earlier grants have now come to fruition and have made a huge difference to the communities in which they are based. These facilities are so much more than mere bricks and mortar - they are at the very heart of our communities and help people, young and old, form new friendships, get involved in social activities and build healthier, happier lives. I am certain that the funding I’ve announced today will further contribute to the regeneration of some of the most deprived communities in Wales.”
