Clean Coasts Grant Scheme

Open to all Clean Coasts Groups
Deadline: 28th February 2019

The Clean Coasts grant 2019 was funded by donations from our corporate volunteering days with businesses all around Ireland. This grant scheme would not have been possible without their kind donations. Please find more information about our corporate volunteering days here.

There are many reasons why a Clean Coasts group might require financial support for projects/activities. A Clean Coasts grant may help get a project started; support a project which is already underway; or may help where finance is a concern.

Please read carefully the Clean Coasts Grant Scheme’s terms and conditions.

What grants are available?

Clean Coasts groups can apply for grants up to €500.  We also have a number of beach cleaning kits or adopted beach signs to give to suitable groups. Please indicate in your application which option or options you are applying for.

What can you spend your Clean Coasts Grant on?

Clean Coasts groups are covered under third part public liability insurance. If a group would prefer to seek further cover, you can apply for a grant towards this. 

Spades, saws, forks, rakes, wheelbarrows and litter-pickers.

Postage, stationary, telephone calls, internet usage and website maintenance.

Protective boots, rubber gloves, waterproofs, antiseptic hand-wipes and first aid kits.

Petrol, travel expenses (cost to and from practical and networking events) and coffee and snacks for volunteers.

A group could apply for a sign below for their adopted beach.

Skip hire, native trees, shrubs/bulbs, sand, stone, wood, benches, signs and notice-boards.

Posters, competitions, venue hire, leaflet production and display materials.

Vehicle hire, insurance and membership of networking organisations.

Please note personal expenses cannot be claimed.

It is important to establish that only a limited Clean Coasts grant may be available, and may be just a contribution towards financial requirements.
