Community Affairs Policy Committee

RELATED NEWS STORY: [30 SEP 98] Ethnic Protest At Coventry Council House

Coventry City Council’s Community Affairs Policy Committee is being recommended not to support two grant applications by the Ethnic Minority Alliance, under the Government’s Single Regeneration Budget.

Despite considerable city council assistance, the projects are not yet in a form capable of approval.

Delay has already lost some 27,000 of grant to ethnic minority groups. The PCC is being recommended to act now so as to ensure further grant is not lost and that it actually gives to the ethnic minority community as originally intended – but delivered through organisations other than the Ethnic Minority Alliance. The council will be urgently working with partners to achieve this.

NOTES:

  1. Coventry and Warwickshire Partnerships secured some 22.5m of funding under the first round of the government’s Single Regeneration Budget.
  2. One of the indicative projects was a capacity-building Block Grant for the ethnic minority sector. This bid was initially submitted by the Ethnic Minority Development Alliance and later re-submitted by the Ethnic Minority Alliance. The project’s indicative SRB grant was 270,000 (now 230,000).
  3. Coventry City Council was successful in securing some 1.1m of grant for Foleshill under the third round of the Single Regeneration Budget.
  4. One of the indicative projects under the Round 3 programme is the One-Stop Shop, again first submitted by the Ethnic Minority Development Alliance and later re-submitted by the Ethnic Minority Alliance. Its indicative SRB grant value is 425,000.
