County Council Tidy Towns and Amenity Grant


Roscommon County Council is currently accepting applications for funding under the Tidy Towns and Amenity Grants Scheme 2012.

  A limited amount of funding will be made available to Tidy Towns Associations and Local Development Groups to help them to carry out small scale capital amenity projects.  Roscommon County Council will prioritise the Tidy Towns Associations who enter the National Tidy Towns Competition during 2012 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.  Unfortunately due to the limited amount of funding available large scale capital projects will not be considered for funding in 2012.

  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 Friday, 27th April 2011 at 4.30 pm. 

  It is intended that decisions in relation to funding will be made at the May Meeting of Roscommon County Council and that all groups will be notified within two weeks of that meeting.

  For further information, application forms and schemes are available from Community and Enterprise Section, Roscommon County Council, Roscommon West, Business Park, Circular Rd., Roscommon Tel: 090-6637316 or e-mail: amandas@roscommoncoco.ieIssue dated: 13 April 2012
