There are only a few days left for community groups to apply for funding under Galway County Council’s Climate Action Support Scheme.
Not-for-profit organisations have a wide range of options for applying and I would urge them to use this opportunity to join the national drive towards greater energy efficiency.
Grants available include those for minor works energy efficiency measures, such as LED lighting, heating control upgrades, draught proofing, insulation and new external doors.
There are also supports for building energy assessments under the Community Energy Audit Scheme, Community Groups affiliated to the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland provided there is a clear purpose for funding, community water bottle filling stations, climate awareness events, biodiversity projects, Tidy Towns climate friendly initiatives, school climate projects, environmental master plans and cultural activities to raise climate action awareness.
