The Small Grants Programme 2016-2017 attracted 28 applications before the deadline of noon on 25 November 2015. One application was received after the closing date which was not assessed due to its lateness and the application being incomplete. A further three applications were rejected as outwith our eligibility criteria, and therefore were not part of the full assessment process. The remaining 25 applications were fully assessed, 11 of which did not meet our assessment criteria and were therefore not awarded funding.

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