The following questions identify what you need to do get ready to launch your community share offer, and how you plan to meet these needs.
The grant application is split into two parts:
1) Getting investment ready - further work on your business plan, community engagement work, governance structure, legal registration, and the share offer document
2) Launching the offer - applying for the Community Shares Standard Mark and costs associated with promoting the live offer
You can apply for a grant of up to £10,000 divided between these two parts. There are no restrictions on how much you can apply for against each part, other than your overall grant cannot exceed £10,000. If you want to apply for just Part 1 or Part 2, simply leave the relevant section blank.
