County Council’s Community & Environment Fund now OPEN

Community & Environment Grants Scheme 2015

Monaghan County Council has launched its annual Community & Environment Funding Scheme.

The Community & Environment Grant scheme is available to all community groups in the county to support community development activity and environmental projects in their local communities. The grant scheme has three areas of funding. Community groups can make applications to more than one area of funding if they wish by submitting a separate application for each. The three areas of funding available are

  1. Community Development Fund
  2. Environment fund
  3. Tidy Areas fund (restricted to local authority housing estates).

The Community Development Fund aims to promote, enhance and develop community development, environmental activity and social inclusion work throughout the county. Funding is open to any community and voluntary group in the county. Applications are only accepted from Community Groups or organisations in county Monaghan.

Support and advice is available to any community group wishing to make an application by contacting Fionnuala Mulligan in the Community Department in Monaghan County Council.

Applicants are advised this funding scheme is separate to funding currently available from the Municipal Districts
