Organisations are invited to make an application for funding for new and innovative projects to increase the use of the Welsh language.

The grant will support Theme 2: Increasing the use of Welsh within the Welsh Government’s Welsh language strategy Cymraeg 2050: A million Welsh speakers.

The grant aims to fund innovative projects that support the aims of the theme noted above and also meet one (or more) of the criteria set for “innovation” set out below:

  • Projects that increase the use of Welsh through technology
  • Projects that offer new ideas and activities that increase the use of Welsh and have not been undertaken previously
  • Projects that offer new ways of working to encourage and promote the use of Welsh
  • Projects that take risks and which have potentially far-reaching impacts if successful, but need money to pilot the idea before mainstreaming the project

Applications for grants are accepted from organisations from the third and private sectors and from public bodies for activities not covered by their statutory Welsh Language Standards regulations.

The closing date for applications is 22 September 2017.
