A new scheme has been opened to support local environmental projects focusing on climate change and biodiversity. Any school, community group or club who wants to take a step to tackle climate change or promote biodiversity can put forward ideas before 27th September.
The Community Environment Action Fund, (previously known as the Local Agenda 21 Environmental Partnership Fund or LA21), funds small scale, non-profit environmental projects, that make a significant difference in local communities. Last year over 850 projects were supported under this scheme, and a wide variety of projects and schemes have been supported in previous years including, community gardens, allotments and compost schemes, rainwater harvesting schemes, educational initiatives and environmental exhibitions.
Nearly €1million is available to support hundreds of projects in local communities all across Ireland. Groups seeking funding for eligible projects are invited to make an application to their local authority (application forms are available from the local authorities). Applications for Fingal based projects should be made directly to Fingal County Council no later than 5pm, September 27th 2019. The application form is available online at http://fingal.ie/environment/community-environment-action-fund/. Applications must be submitted to the following email address: email@example.com
