Faiths in Action - Supporting Local Inter Faith Projects - 2 September 2010

The Faiths in Action grant programme is still open for applications and encouraging organisations to apply for grants to produce work during interfaith week.

After a review of its funding commitments earlier this year, the Faiths in Action programme has recently announced it is still open to applications. The programme has just awarded funding to over 100 organisations to run local inter faith projects across England, in order to strengthen local communities.

The Faiths in Action programme, managed by the Community Development Foundation (CDF) and sponsored by Communities and Local Government, creates opportunities for dialogue and collaboration between different faith groups within local communities.

The Faiths in Action grant programme is open for applications for projects running up to March 2011, with a total of £2 million available in grants of up to £6,000 each. Applicants are particularly encouraged to apply for funding for activities to take place during national Inter Faith Week running from 21-27 November 2010 and led by the Inter Faith Network. As the fund is quickly approaching its capacity, applicants are advised to apply as soon as possible. Please consult the CDF website for availability of grants and details of the application process.
