Cadwyn Clwyd can only support projects which are located in the eligible areas in Flintshire and Denbighshire.

In most circumstances, project applications will be assessed on a quarterly basis by Cadwyn Clwyd’s Manager, The Partnership Technical Advisory Group and the Board of Directors.

Applications requesting up to £2,500 will be assessed by the Manager of Cadwyn Clwyd. Applications requesting between £2,500 and £5000 will be assessed by the Manager and presented to the Advisory Group for comments.
