Residential and community groups can pick up an application form from Housing Executive offices in South Region. They can also get free advice and support on completing their form by ringing 0344 892 0900 and speaking to their Good Relations Officer for the area.
Comghal McQuillan, the Housing Executive’s South Regional Manager, explains how the funding can make a difference to the lives of local people:
“Our grants can support the fantastic work that you are already doing and help you achieve even more.
“In previous years I have seen community groups use funding from our Community Grant Scheme to complete a diverse range of projects. These have included holding healthy eating classes, transforming previously unloved areas, setting up wellbeing clubs and creating fantastic pieces of community artwork.
“I really encourage any group that wants to break down barriers in their community, tackle social isolation and make a positive impact to apply.”
