The small grants programme 2015-16 attracted 21 applications before the deadline on 26 November 2015. One application was received after the closing date which was not assessed due to its lateness and not meeting our criteria. A further two applications were rejected as outwith our eligibility criteria, and therefore were not part of the full assessment process. One application was withdrawn prior to assessment. The remaining 18 applications were fully assessed, three of which did not meet our assessment criteria and were therefore not awarded funding.

The full list of the projects to be funded is available on the following web link:
