Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme
The Live Here Love Here annual Small Grants Scheme will open for applications on Monday 16th April 2018, from any group or organisation committed to improving our local environment and building a sense of community pride.
In partnership with Local Councils, the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, Choice Housing, Northern Ireland Housing Executive, McDonald’s and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, the small grants scheme provides support to volunteer projects that:
- Use innovative ways to reduce littering and dog fouling where you live.
- Improve the way your local environment is looked after, whether urban, rural or coastal.
- Contribute to the development of civic pride within a community with a focus on environmental improvement.
- Enhance or attract tourism to your community through environmental improvements.
Grants are available from £500 to £5,000 and are open to volunteer and community groups, all school and third level education organisations, youth groups and sports clubs undertaking civic pride projects in supporting Council areas. In 2016, £109,000 of funding was made available supporting 78 local community projects.
Mid Ulster District Council will be holding a Small Grants workshop on Monday 9th April 2018 at 6.30pm in Ranfurly House, Dungannon.
