Belfast CC Park Events Small grants
Grants are available to non-party political, Belfast-based organisations such as community, youth and church groups. In your application form, you must specify how your organisation or group will use the grant.
A grant of up to £2,250 is available up until 31 October 2012 (subject to the availability of funds).
If your grant application is successful, you will receive 50 per cent of the grant funding before the event takes place, subject to the return of a signed ‘letter of offer’ to them. You will receive the remaining balance of the grant funding only after the event takes place, subject to the return of the correct supporting documentation to us.
