Apply Now for the Community Environment Action Fund (Local Agenda 21)
The Local Agenda 21 Environmental Partnership Fund (LA21) which has operated since 1997, promotes sustainable development by assisting small-scale environmental projects at local level. The Scheme has been renamed the Community Environment Action Fund from 2019 onwards.
The projects involve partnership arrangements between local authorities and various local groups including community groups, schools and environmental NGOs.
The Community Environment Action Fund assists sustainable development from the ground-up and facilitates, at local level, the achievement of the objectives of the Agenda 21 action plan on sustainable development.
The Fund is administered by local authorities, in conjunction with the Department of communications, Climate Action and Environment. Eligible projects are those which support and complement, at a local level, national environmental policies such as those on Waste, Biodiversity, Climate Change, Air, Water and Sustainable Development. We are particularly interested in projects which target Climate Action and Biodiversity this year given the focus on our Climate Action Strategy.
Further information on the scheme, including projects completed in previous years is available from the following link:
