Whitemountain provides grant funding for community projects.
Since is beginnings in 2007, the Whitemountain (formerly Alpha) Programme has distributed over £7 million of funding to 220 fantastic community and biodiversity projects through the Landfill Communities Fund. This funding helps groups to achieve their plans for positive change in their community.
Grants of up to £50,000 are available for projects making a positive impact at ground level, either developing facilities for community use or encouraging biodiversity and environmental improvements.
Funding is available under two strands:
- Whitemountain Programme Small Grants (£3k to £10k)
- Whitemountain Programme Main Grants (£10k to £50k)
If you have a great community or biodiversity focused project which lies within the 15 mile radius of Mullaghglass landfill site near Lisburn (and within 10 miles of a licensed landfill site), then why not apply?
