Community Asset Transfer 2

Round 2 of the Community Asset Transfer 2 (CAT2) programme will open on May 10th, 2016. The deadline for stage one applications is September 14th, 2016. We are holding three briefing events for potential applicants across Wales and will provide advice on how to apply for funding through the programme. The events will take place in the following locations:
  • May 10th 2016 – All Nations Centre, Cardiff (now fully booked)
  • May 11th 2016 – MRC Centre, Llandrindod Wells
  • May 12th 2016 – Galeri Caernarfon
If you would like to book a place at one of the event, please click hereGoes to different websiteOpens in new window and complete the booking form.

The CAT2 programme will provide both capital and revenue funding to support the transfer of assets, such as land and buildings, from individuals, public or private sector organisations to community ownership.

We want to help communities become stronger and more sustainable by assisting them to obtain and develop assets such as land or buildings. We will do this by developing assets transferred from individuals, public or private sector organisations to enterprising organisations that actively involve and benefit the communities they serve. They must work towards improving the services and/or facilities for their community, be able to demonstrate that their proposals are sustainable in the long-term and take into account the environmental, social and economic impacts of their work. Transfers can be either freehold or leasehold, but the transfer must be made at nil cost or at significantly below market value.
The programme is being delivered via a two stage application process. Organisations will be required to complete a stage one application but will only be required to develop and submit a stage two application (a project plan and capital project delivery plan) if their stage one application is successful. Development grants are available to support the development of stage two applications.
