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.
