LAOIS County Council have launched their Community Grant Scheme for 2013.
The scheme provides grant aid to residents associations, community groups and other groups or committees who are engaged in community amenity works. Each year applications are invited for amenity projects such as landscaping, or purchase of equipment, and the maximum grant available is determined by the number of complete and valid applications received.
To be eligible, groups must be formally constituted and hold an AGM or regular meetings. Copy of minutes of recent committee meetings have to be submitted, as do up to date quotations for goods or services. On completion of the project, invoices and before and after photographs must be submitted.
The closing date for receipt of fully completed applications is Wednesday February 13. The final date for completed reports is Friday, September 27.
