Tidy Town and Amenity Grants 2018
Roscommon County Council is currently accepting applications for funding under the Tidy Towns and Amenity Grants Scheme 2018. Funding will be made available to Tidy Towns Associations and Local Development Groups to help them to carry out small scale amenity projects. Roscommon County Council will prioritise the Tidy Towns Associations who enter the National Tidy Towns Competition during 2018 in order to support their ongoing work.
Local development groups who carry out small scale local enhancement or amenity works but do not enter the National Tidy Towns competition will also be considered for funding. Due to the limited amount of funding available large scale capital projects cannot be considered for funding.
Applicants should be aware that payment will only be made in respect of eligible, approved projects on receipt of valid vouched expenditure and confirmation that proposed projects have been completed. The maximum grant payable will be the amount allocated or 75% of the value of invoices submitted, whichever is the lower. Grants will be payable retrospectively. Successful applicants will be required to ensure that their tax and insurance affairs are in order and that they have evidence of same.
Roscommon County Council recognises the benefit of this scheme for local communities and also recognises the amount of work that is undertaken by local communities each year. It is important that all applicants make themselves familiar with the terms of the scheme to ensure their eligibility prior to making an application.
The closing date for completed applications is 5.00pm on Friday, 9th March 2018
It is intended that decisions in relation to funding will be made at the April Meeting of Roscommon County Council and that all groups will be notified thereafter.
