Thursday, 10 November 2016
LIMAVADY Community Development Initiative (LCDI) has been appointed as the Intermediary Funding Body for a new Small Grants Programme announced by Communities Minister, Paul Givan this week. Mr Givan revealed that funding of £270,000 was available for the pilot programme aimed at providing assistance to voluntary and community organisations to purchase equipment.
The Programme will be run across Northern Ireland and will be aimed at small organisations who may have difficulty accessing more mainstream funding programmes. It is expected that applications will be received from a range of organisations across the youth, sporting, charitable and religious sectors.
Minister Givan said: "This pilot programme aims to assist those community organisations who are in need of small items of equipment to enable them to deliver much needed services across the community."
The Department for Communities is providing £270,000 to establish a Small Capital Grants pilot programme. The Programme is intended to reach small organisations to enable them to purchase items of equipment to sustain and enhance their activities and services to the community.
The Minister continued: "I welcome this opportunity to be able to announce this funding and I would encourage small community organisations who fit the criteria to apply for funding.
