Communities Minister, Paul Givan, has encouraged eligible organisations to the Community Halls Pilot Grant Programme to apply for the funding before the approaching deadline.

The Programme is open to all types of community halls – church halls, scout halls, Orange halls, AOH halls, sports clubs, village halls and other not for profit community halls. The application period will close at 12.00pm on 23 November.

Speaking on a visit to a community hall at Cooke Church on the Ormeau Road, the Minister said: “A range of halls across Northern Ireland are used by thousands of people each day, with many of them requiring support to undertake minor works to maintain and/or enhance their valuable contribution to the local community and wider society.

“This Programme makes available awards of up to £25,000 to undertake minor work such as boiler replacements, disability access, installation of new toilets, kitchens and car park improvements. The Programme has already generated plenty of interest from across Northern Ireland but with less than two weeks to apply, I would encourage community organisations who fit the criteria to submit an application before 23 November.
