Live Here Love Here launches its annual Small Grants Scheme on Monday 16th April 2018 and invites any group or organisation committed to improving our local environment and building a sense of community pride to apply!
In partnership with Mid Ulster District Council and other Councils, the Department of Agriculture, the Environment and Rural Affairs, Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Choice Housing, McDonald’s and Keep Northern 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.
Mid Ulster District Council invites you to attend an information session on Monday 9th April at 6.30pm in Ranfurly House, Dungannon, where representatives from Live Here Love Here will be available to talk you through the application process.
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 the Mid Ulster area.
Previous groups have benefitted from this grant scheme by; transforming an area of grassland into an inviting picnic space; enhancing an overgrown roadside by cleaning up and planting spring bulbs and wildflowers; and combatting littering and dog fouling with innovative posters and notices.
