Micro grants 

If you have an idea that will benefit the community and you have the support of at least two other Clarion Housing households, then we can offer micro grants of up to £300 to help get your idea off the ground. The micro grants are ideal if you’re not part of a formal group or you are a non-profit group needing small funding to try something new.

As an example one resident bought materials to start a new food growing area for their street. Another resident wanted to run a social event in their community centre to meet their neighbours.
