Environmental Awareness

Do you have a project or initiative that could help to increase awareness of environmental issues locally, or that could help your community to become more sustainable?

If so, you may qualify for financial assistance from the Community Environment Action Fund 2019, previously known as the Local Agenda 21 Environmental Partnership Fund.  This Fund promotes sustainable development by assisting small scale, non-profit environmental projects at local level.

How to Apply

Click the link to submit your 'Community Environment Action Fund' application.

Applications must be submitted no later than 5pm, 27th September 2019.

Does Your Project Qualify?

Projects should focus on environmental awareness and actions which complement national environmental policies such as those on waste, biodiversity, water conservation and climate change.  The Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton, TD has asked that priority be given to Climate and Biodiversity projects in the 2019 scheme. Projects focusing on biodiversity should take account of the National Biodiversity Action Plan and/or the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan and how it applies to the local area. 

A wide variety of projects and schemes have been supported under the Fund in previous years, including community gardens and allotments, compost schemes, rainwater harvesting, biodiversity projects, waste reduction initiatives, educational initiatives and environmental exhibitions.  Click the link for a 'List of Previously Funded LA21 Projects'.
