Member Awarded Funding (MAF)       

The Member Awarded Funding scheme is a new way for South Gloucestershire Councillors to support their local community.

In February 2016 South Gloucestershire Council resolved to replace the previous Community Grants programme with a scheme that gives Councillors the opportunity to make awards to projects and services that benefit residents in their ward.

How will Member Awarded Funding work?

Under the new arrangements, each Councillor has £3,000 to award to local projects and services before 31 March 2017.

If you have an idea for a project or service that will benefit your local community, contact your councillor to discuss your plans.

For further information on the principles and process of the programme please go to South Gloucestershire Council’s website where you can find more information on the scheme southglos.gov.uk/MAF or contact the Grants Team grants@southglos.gov.uk, 01454 865865.
