The Small Grants Fund Committee is made up of self nominated members and those invited by the Chair, with an optimum number of approximately 10 – 12. Each Committee member must be willing to visit projects for a pre or post assessment & once the project is checked out to act as a contact point and advocate.  A willingness to write reports on the visits is also expected.


The Committee has responsibility for the administration of the Small Grants Fund as well as approving and monitoring all grant applications through to implementation & conclusion of the project.
