FOI Request Local Business Grants (2)
I would like to make the following Freedom of Information request to your council.
1. In the two most recent full financial years ( 2015-16 and 2016-17) how much money was paid in grants and funding to local businesses/start-ups, religious groups/establishments, and charities by your council? This does not include loans.
For example, payments made to support a new business that could benefit the local economy, enable a charity to carry out worthy project, money to enable a local church to offer support to homeless people, etc.
Please break down by year.
2. For the year 2016-17, please break down by the name of the charity/business, the amount of money they received, and a brief outline of the services or projects they offer/planned to offer.
I would be grateful if you could provide this information in an excel spreadsheet.
