Clean Coasts Grant Scheme

Open to all Clean Coasts Groups
Deadline: 16th March 2018

The Clean Coasts grant 2018 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 need financial support for projects/activities. A Clean Coasts grant may help get a project started; support a project which is already underway; and may help where finance is a concern.

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

What grants are available?

We have a number of €500 grants available for Clean Coasts groups to apply for.  We also have a number of beach cleaning kits or adopted beach signs. Please indicate in your application which 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.

Postage, stationary, telephone calls, internet usage, website maintenance etc

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