Merseyside Police are reminding anyone interested in applying for funding for community projects to get their applications in soon as the closing date is getting nearer.
The Community Cashback Fund scheme, which was launched in February, invites local community groups across Merseyside to apply for up to £5,000 funding to help develop local projects.
We’ve launched our Community Cashback Fund and are inviting community groups from across Merseyside to apply for up to £5,000 to develop existing projects or start new ones.

It is one of many new initiatives which are happening throughout the year that enable the police to re-invest money which has been seized from criminals back into the local community.
There is £100,000 available within this scheme, with £70k coming from the proceeds of crime and a further £30k of funding being provided by the Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership to provide more grassroots projects and community groups support.
The deadline for applications is the 20th March 2022.
