The minutes of the meeting held on 10 July, 2019 were accepted.

 

The Treasurer noted that due to the lack of applications received for grant funding from the Community and Sporting Facilities – Capital Grants for 2019/20 the General Grants Committee resolved that a further advertisement be afforded to voluntary and other organisations to submit grant applications with a closing date of December, 2019 for the receipt of the applications.  The Isle of Anglesey Charitable Trust at its meeting held on 23 January, 2019 delegated a budget of £125k to the General Grants Committee but only £36,422 was allocated.  He further noted that the General Grants Committee considered that applications who have received grant funding in the last two years should be considered if funding is available.

 

It was RESOLVED:-

 

·      That further advertisement be afforded to voluntary and other organisations to submit grant applications due to the lack of applications received;

·      That applications from organisations who have received grant funding in the last two years be considered if funding is available.
