who decides if an application has been successful?

A panel made up of tenants from across the county will meet at the beginning of each month to discuss incoming applications. They will be supported by a County Durham Housing Group representative.

The panel will give priority to projects that:

  • Bring the community together and provide community safety
  • Improve health and wellbeing
  • Offer employment, skills and training opportunities
  • Increase family income.

Please make sure you allow enough time for the panel to consider your application at their monthly meetings as we are unable to fund projects retrospectively.

Full terms and conditions are available here.
