Capital Grants Programme
Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Capital Grants Programme is now open to receive applications. The fund aims to support external infrastructure projects that are aligned to Council’s aims and objectives. The Fund is available to local sports and community organisations who wish to apply for support towards the development of new or the enhancement of existing facilities to meet unmet need. This is a competitive fund and grant awards will be determined on the basis of merit.
The Programme Guidance notes contain the information applicants need to know about the process for applying and the criteria against which all applications will be scored.
