Community Grant Scheme
The IoAHC Community Grant Scheme is now closed. Through the Community Grant scheme the IoAHC provided an opportunity for Communities, Land Owners and Local Organisations to plan where they would like to deliver outcomes for the Landscape Partnership. In total 22 projects were supported through the scheme.
Applicants could apply for a maximum of £2,000, and grants totalling £33,229 were awarded between 2016 and 2022.
The Landscape Partnership had a number of priorities relating to their scheme and therefore community projects were also required to be able to demonstrate they met one or more of those priorities:
- Heritage – Helping to restore, increase access to or increase recording of heritage. This includes local history, culture and nature.
- Awareness and Understanding of Local Landscape – Increasing the opportunity for residents and visitors to gain a better awareness and understanding of their local landscape.
- Community Heritage Capacity – Providing training and opportunities for communities to develop skills and affectively manager their heritage.
- Legacy – Getting volunteers involved with landscapes and heritage to ensure a legacy of activity.
