Funding for climate action and biodiversity projects – open to schools, clubs and community groups

Mr. Richard Bruton, T.D., Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment today (Wednesday, 21st August 2019), opened a scheme to support local environmental projects focusing on climate change and biodiversity. The new scheme is called the Community Environment Action fund, and it replaces the Local Agenda 21 Fund.
The fund is open to schools, community groups or clubs who wish to undertake local initiatives to tackle climate change or promote biodiversity. A wide variety of projects and schemes have been supported under the Fund in previous years including, community gardens, allotments and compost schemes, rainwater harvesting schemes, educational initiatives and environmental exhibitions. This year’s priority is for projects in the area of Climate and Biodiversity.
Groups seeking funding for eligible projects are invited to make an application to their local authority (application forms are available from the local authorities). Completed application forms should be returned to the relevant local authority at the latest by 5pm, 27 September 2019.
Application forms can be obtained from Moira Kelly in the Environment Section of Monaghan County Council. mkelly@monaghancoco.ie
