Correspondence on the outcome of applications will then be issued in the first week of May. For activity that falls within these dates applicants are advised to proceed at risk (acknowledging any potential support from Council) until they know the outcome of the decision making process. 

Rolling Grant Programme

Applications can be made for grants in the Sports Representative (club and individual) Community Festivals and Good Relations categories on a rolling basis throughout the year, and there are funding programmes that operate on an open/close basis throughout the year. 

Good Relations and PCSP strategic plans 

The Council’s Good Relations section and Mid Ulster Policing and Community Safety Partnership are currently developing their Action Plans for 2018/19. If you would like to engage or partner with the Council on these plans, please contact the PCSP or Good Relations team on 03000 132 132.

In addition to the Council's grants programme, we can provide support and guidance to groups on identifying other sources of funding for the community and voluntary sector. 

Now more than ever charities, community and voluntary groups have to look for new sources of funding. GrantTracker can help you do this.

This funding toolkit helps you to find funding relevant to your projects, keep on top of funding deadlines and manage your applications.  There are 900 funding opportunities on GrantTracker: all relevant to groups/charities applying for funding here.
