Leader of the Council, Cllr Huw Thomas said: "The Council has clearly set out our priorities in the Stronger, Fairer and Greener Policy which provides the blueprintand vision on how the city will develop over the next three years and beyond.

"The plan sets out 7 wellbeing objectives to achieve this, which are making Cardiff a great place to grow up and grow older; supporting people out of poverty; empowering communities; reducing our carbon footprint through One Planet Cardiff and modernising and integrating our public services.

"The applications that are received will be judged against a range of policies including the Stronger, Fairer, Greener Policy and Cardiff's Wellbeing Plan, as well as the eligibility criteria which is set by UK Government which is all set out on the Council's website. We hope as many eligible organisations apply, so we can direct this funding to where it is needed most so that we can make a difference to local people and benefit local communities."
