Small Grants Scheme

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.

*The Small Grants Scheme is CLOSED for applications*

The Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme is an incredible opportunity for local communities to apply for a grant between £500 to £3000 to improve their environment and promote a cleaner, greener and safer place to live.

Launched by 10 of the 11 Local Councils, Northern Ireland Housing Executive and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, the Small Grants Scheme provides support to volunteer projects that:

  • Contribute to the development of civic pride within a community with a focus on environmental improvement.
  • Encourage actions and projects that enable Pollution Solutions, Biodiversity Recovery and Climate Action.
  • Enhance the environmental management of a local area.
  • Improve the health and wellbeing of communities whilst helping to improve and/or maintain public spaces.
  • Improve the quality of their local environment by reducing littering and dog fouling through community Action.
  • Support environmentally focused actions that help support people impacted through reduced contact with society.  
  • Community food growing initiatives.

This will certainly be another year of obstacles, but we will be here as support throughout the Small Grants process as always and will be as flexible as possible!
