In light of COVID-19, the Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme will make available funding to community groups enabling them to support the needs of local people impacted through reduced contact with society.
Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful
Additional criteria has been added to the Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme this year:
- Support actions that help care for those in need as a result of COVID-19.
A range of much needed community help that could be supported includes, but not limited to:
- Emerging issues in the community as a result of the continuing threat of COVID-19.
- Grow Your Own projects and materials (supplemented by online webinars/classes for e.g. on seed collection, seasonal food growing and maintenance, cookery, foraging etc.) to encourage new skills development, extend virtual environmental education opportunities to the wider community and to provide positive interventions to tackle loneliness and isolation in response to COVID-19.
- Applications welcome from newly formed COVID-19 action groups to act as a community hub and to distribute growing kits to families/individuals in the wider community.
