Priority may be given to the Tidy Towns Associations who enter the National Competitions during the coming year; however local groups who carry out small developments but do not enter the competition will also be considered.

Payment will only be made in respect of eligible, approved projects on receipt of valid vouched expenditure and confirmation that proposed projects have been completed and the maximum grant payable will be amount allocated or 75% of the vaue of invoices submitted.
