We are looking at opening the Watermark Flood Fund to support people affected by the flooding during Storm Ciara as soon as possible. We will also be opening a new appeal asap.
Please note all applications to CFFC for grant aid over £5000 from our general and donor funds will now be assessed for their suitability for a loan. This may result in your organisation being offered a loan from the Calderdale Social Investment Fund rather than a grant. Applications for £5000 or less will be assessed for their suitability for a ‘hybrid’ loan/grant:
- If your organisation has over 6 months reserves
- Is applying to finance a capital project
- Where either your project or organisation has income generation activities
- Where your organisation needs a short term cash-flow fix
