We will be inviting community groups to apply for funding to tackle rural poverty in rural areas of Wales.
The first round of funding has now closed. A second round will open in 2018. Details of this round will be announced in early 2018.
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT
This funding for the Rural Programme comes after £2 million was set aside for community development support. Severn Wye Energy Agency, in partnership with BRO Partnership, will support up to 30 communities in Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Powys, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Monmouthshire to tackle poverty in their areas. The partnership will support communities to address issues that could include employment and income, transport and access to services, poor broadband and digital exclusion, housing and fuel poverty, and demand for welfare and advice services.
