Applications open for city council Environmental Partnership fund

Applications have now opened for the 2019 Galway City Council Environmental Partnership Fund.

Groups and communities in the city who have an idea for a project that could increase local levels of environmental awareness or help the community to become more sustainable can get financial support through this fund.

This Fund promotes sustainable development by assisting small scale, non-profit environmental projects at local level.

Projects should focus on environmental awareness and actions which complement national environmental policies such as those on waste, biodiversity, water conservation and climate change.

The fund has supported a wide variety of projects in the past including community gardens and allotments, compost schemes, rainwater harvesting, biodiversity projects, waste reduction initiatives, educational initiatives and exhibitions.

Examples of previously funded projects can be viewed online at www.dccae.gov.ie.

Applications for this year’s fund can be made directly to the city council environment section, with forms available at the council or online at galwaycity.ie/localagenda.

Applications must be made to Galway City Council no later than 5pm on Friday, September 27, 2019.

Email applications will be accepted.
