Small Grants Scheme

Small Grants Scheme Launch

**The next round of the Small Grants Scheme will be launched in Mid April 2018!**

The Live Here Love Here team are visiting a number of locations across the country to help you with your Small Grants Scheme applications for 2018. See our timetable below for locations, dates and times. If you would like to attend please contact Karina at karina.magee@keepnorthernirelandbeautiful.org.

The Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme takes a fresh approach to improving our local environment and building a sense of pride in our local communities. Launched by Local 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.
  • To 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 all Council areas. 

The Small Grants Scheme is also open to all Housing Association and Housing Executive residents with support from Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Choice Housing, and McDonald’s throughout all council areas in Northern Ireland.
