Mainstream Grant funding increases

One of the many problems of trying to make sense of how Tower Hamlets Council allocates grants is that the documentation is inconsistent. An example of this is the main PDF file that refers to the allocation of Mainstream Grants (MSG) awards,  01c Appendix 1 Collated Reports by funding stream for Cabinet Final – 301112.pdf  [PDF file will open in new window]

While other council documents have one field that identifies the grant amount the document for the Mainstream Grants has two fields. One is for the amount the organisation applied for and the other is the amount awarded to the organisation.

In some instances the two amounts are the same but in other instances the council seems to have awarded organisations significantly more than they asked for.

The reason for this is not known. The 86 instances where this has happened are shown below. To put this data into context please see Tower Hamlets council grants distribution by electoral ward.

Mainstream Grants awards increases over and above grant sums requested by applicants.
