Cash for green improvements available

FUNDING of up to £500 is being made available to organisations wanting to improve green spaces in Liverpool.

The cash is being made available by Mayor Joe Anderson for not for profit community groups, civic organisations, volunteer groups, school PTAs and small to medium sized businesses across the city to make environmental improvements.

The aim is to help kick start new initiatives and activities or contribute towards larger projects and could include the likes of litter picking in parks and green spaces, greening and planting projects for grot spots and other environmental enhancements.

Councillor Steve Munby, Cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said:- "We recognise that there are a lot of organisations such as friends of parks groups who are keen to give something back to their local community or improve their area, but need some funding to buy equipment or plants.  By making relatively small amounts of money available we know we can make a big difference to areas that need enhancing environmentally."

The funding cannot be used to pay salaries, management costs, purchasing vehicles or ICT equipment or projects which duplicate services.

A total of £20,000 has been earmarked for the scheme.

The application form can be found at online,  or by searching for Community Funding at:- Liverpool.Gov.UK  and clicking on the Environmental Initiative Fund.   The closing date is Thursday, 4 August 2016, at midday.
