CALLING ALL: Church Halls, Orange Halls, Youth Halls, Farmers Halls ...
First Minister Arlene Foster and Minister for Communities Paul Givan have announced £500,000 funding for community halls to support improvement works for Community Halls across Northern Ireland.
The funding will enable community organisations in urban and rural areas to undertake minor works and improvements to their premises.
The Community Halls Minor Works pilot programme is intended to reach those groups and communities most in need and to make a difference and assist organisations which offer space and services to the benefit of the community.
Individual awards of up to a maximum of £25,000 will be made to community organisations. Funding may be used for a range of small scale refurbishment works.
Priority will be given to applications:
Where there has been limited previous investment by central government, local councils or Lottery funds;
are currently restricted in their use or under-utilised because of disrepair;
have been subject to recent criminal damage or result of anti-social behaviour;
are located in areas where access to similar services is limited.
Closing date NOON 23rd November 2016
The Programme is now open for applications. Further information and applications
