Youth capital projects in Northern Ireland to receive

The Department of Education in Northern Ireland has announced a new £10 million capital grants scheme for youth organisations.

The money will be made available over the next two financial years, with a deadline for applications of 28 June 2013.

Eligibility

To be eligible organisations must be registered with the local education and library board or receive funding from the Youth Council for Northern Ireland and be able to demonstrate the operation of a Youth Service Programme for at least nine hours per week for a minimum of 30 weeks per annum.

Grant aid can assist with the costs of refurbishing premises, improving facilities or access for people with disabilities, bringing the property up to current health, safety and fire authority standards, towards child protection measures or meeting needs of young people within Section 75/those at greater risk of social exclusion/marginalisation.

Size of grants

The size of grants will be dependent on whether the organisation owns the building or the length of lease on the property. The grant scheme does not provide funding for equipment.

Grants are available in two categories:

  • Minor Works – scheme costing up to a maximum of £150,000 including VAT and fees.
     
  • Major Works – scheme costing over £150,000
