Sources of funding for food related initiatives
Monday 30 June 2008
Guidance for local authorities on alternative sources of funding for food related initiatives, including tips on preparing funding bids, is available.
The guidance is particularly aimed at those environmental health and trading standards officers who have not had much experience with bidding for external funding. It is especially useful as guide to sources of funding that is available for projects across the food safety, standards, diet and healthy eating agenda.
It is intended as a first step in helping local authority food officers increase their access to other sources of funding to support local initiatives.
The guidance covers:
- planning and partnership building before applying for funding
- information on sources of funding and links to useful websites
- tips on preparing applications for funding
- guidance on managing successful projects
