Green Councillors are questioning whether the City Council should be labelling a £1.4m pot as community funding.
Says veteran Green Councillor and former Finance Committee Chair Craig Simmons:
"It is great that the City Council is maintaining most of its grant funding - but it is slightly misleading to call this community funding as a lot is used for delivering statutory services e.g. homelessness. Also, this large, annual grant fund masks the cuts that are happening in the voluntary grants. £45k per year is being taken out of this budget."
