The Alpha Programme
Since its inception in 2007, the Alpha Programme has distributed over £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.
