The Alpha Programme

The Alpha Programme


Since its inception in 2007, the Alpha Programme has distributed almost £4million of Landfill Communities Fund funding to over 100 fantastic community and biodiversity projects, helping communities bring their plans for positive change to reality.

Grants of up to £50,000 are available to fund projects making a positive impact at ground level, either developing facilities for community use or encouraging bio-diversity and environmental improvements.


Funding is available under two grants strands during 2017:
•    Alpha Main Grants Programme (£10k to £50k)
•    Alpha Small Grants Programme (£3k to £10k)


A Steering Group comprising representatives from Alpha Resource Management  Ltd, Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council, Belfast City Council, Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough Council, Mid & East Antrim Borough Council, Ards & North Down Borough Council, the Housing Executive and Groundwork NI adjudicate on applications and funds are distributed on a quarterly basis.

The 2017 application deadlines are:

•    Friday 27th January 2017 at 12 noon
•    Friday 31st March 2017 at 12 noon
•    Friday 30th June 2017 at 12 noon
•    Friday 29th September 2017 at 12 noon

If you have a great community project which lies within a 15 mile radius of the Mullaghglass Landfill Site in South Antrim, then why not apply?
