Celebrations to mark HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be supported and constituted community groups within the Belfast City Council local government boundary can apply for a grant of up to £2,000.
The £100,000 fund which is now open for applications online is being managed by the Community Foundation and grants will be used for community-led events and celebrations during the 4-day jubilee bank holiday weekend (2 – 5 June 2022).
“We ‘re looking for events and programmes that are inclusive and that support participants to be active and involved in their community in positive ways, building relationships and fostering community spirit” said Orla Black, Grants Director at the Foundation
