Amenity Grant Scheme

Each year Louth County Council invites applications for grant assistance from the following:

(a) Residents Associations (b) Tidy Towns Groups (c) Community Groups

This scheme is available to these groups wishing to undertake small scale amenity projects in their area. 

Due to Covid19 restrictions and guidelines, we are unable to annouce Amenity Grant Scheme 2021 Scheme yet, but when Level 5 restrictions are lifted we hope to roll out Grant Scheme like previous years

cleaning, tiding, removal of weeds, presentation of gardens, properties or open spaces, painting, grass cutting, seating, paving, planting of trees, shrubs or flowerbeds, amenity projects, litter control, etc.
