Community Halls Programme

27 October 2016

The Minister for Communities, Paul Givan has made available up to £500,000 capital funding in 2016/2017 to operate a Pilot Programme for community halls.

Many community organisations use community halls in urban and rural areas. Examples include church halls, scout halls, orange halls and other halls and centres which are used for a multitude of activities.

The Department recognises that many of these premises need support to undertake minor works to maintain and/ or enhance their valuable contribution to the local community and wider society.

This Ministerial DfC initiative is being delivered by Departmental officials who will oversee the award and ensure that the benefits are realised.

Any grant awarded will be a maximum of £25,000.

The closing date for applications is strictly Wednesday 23 November 2016 at noon. Please note that incomplete applications or applications received after the closing date and time will be deemed invalid and not be considered.

You can download the application here.

This grant is only eligible for expenditure incurred from the date of award until 31 March 2017.

This application form should be completed by the principle contact person of the organisation.
