Decision:

Resolved:

 

                      i.         Note the progress that has been made on the agreed projects and to thank officers and volunteers who have responded to the COVID-19 crisis;

                     ii.         To continue the Programme, where external funding can be achieved to deliver the original objective to then permit diverting some of the funding to support the most vulnerable – those out of work, and at risk of being so, young people entering the labour market, and small independent businesses. Detailed decisions could be delegated in consultation to the Corporate Director for Economy and Place. Should proceed given the impact of COVID 19.

 

Reason:     So that the Council nurtures a pipeline of projects that

positively address inclusive growth in the City of York, and focusses funding where it is most needed.

Minutes:

Officers provided an update on the Inclusive Growth Initiatives Fund and noted that they had reviewed programs in the initiative, taking into account the impact of COVID-19 on York’s economy and potential access to jobs. The Executive Member requested future updates on the progress of the fund and highlighted that the need for the work outlined in the different programs was likely now in greater need because of the impact of COVID-19. Discussion took place around the programs within the Inclusive Growth Initiatives Fund and the Executive Member thanked City of York Council staff and volunteers for their work in setting up the York Community Hubs.
