Capital Discretionary Grant

Expressions of Interest

Council is seeking to support groups across Mid Ulster in the completion of large community capital investment projects being developed.

Projects which will provide benefit to the community for a period in excess of five years, examples of which may include a new building or refurbishment/renovation of an existing building.

The community projects must be of a minimum value of £300,000, with Council funding to a maximum contribution of £50,000.

The majority of finance/funding should be in place with Council acting as funder of last resort for the target funding shortfall.

The Fund is only open to local Mid Ulster Community & Voluntary Sector organisations including Social Enterprises.

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.
