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

  • Improve the health and well being of communities whilst helping to improve and/or maintain public spaces
  • 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.

Grants are available from £500 to £3,000 and are open to volunteer and community groups, all school and third level education organisations, youth groups and sports clubs undertaking civic pride projects throughout Northern Ireland.
