A RTS organisations in the county could benefit from a one-off £58,000 grant from Herefordshire Council.

The council's cabinet last week approved a recommendation for the re-tendering of the arts commissioning grant budget which will help organisations plan for future reductions in funding.

It follows an amendment to the budget passed by full council on February 7.

The grant is to be allocated in a single bidding round and open only to those organisations which received funding from Herefordshire Council in 2013/14.

Those applying for funds will be prioritised, with an emphasis on demonstrating how the funding will be used to support the organisation move to sustainability without future funding from Herefordshire Council.
