Answer for Safer Neighbourhood Boards - Funding (4)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

A £1 million Fund is available to support SNBs. As soon as boards are established they can submit an invoice for their core administration funding, a ring-fenced amount of £5200 for each borough. There is an application and assessment process for the remaining project funding. All SNBs were advised of the process for accessing their funding in February 2014. 

In relation to project funding, 13 boards have submitted applications to date. Within these 13, 21 different projects have already been agreed and the boards advised that they can invoice immediately. 10 boards have received administration funding, project funding or both.
