AGMA launches new-look grant scheme

21 Oct 2011 - 11:31 by michelle.foster

The Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA) is re-launching its grants scheme for the not-for-profit sector and inviting applications.

The fund, known as the section 48 scheme, has been reviewed to give it a clear focus on the priorities of AGMA’s Greater Manchester Strategy – in particular contributing to economic growth for the region.

The purpose of the scheme is to support properly constituted, not-for-profit voluntary sector groups who provide servicers across Greater Manchester.

The new scheme will be shaped around funding activities and organisations which meet three main objectives:
• Contribute to the recognition of Greater Manchester locally, nationally and internationally – helping create the conditions to attract new investment, new visitors and new talent
• Contribute to improving the skills and employability of Greater Manchester residents, encouraging people to fulfil their full potential
• Play a strong role in developing strong and inclusive communities, contributing to an improved quality of life and well-being for all residents
