Groups in Galway have been urged to put forward anti-litter and anti-graffiti projects for funding from Galway County Council.
The new funding is a result of a grant from the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment to co-fund local public education and awareness initiatives against litter and graffiti.
Minister Ciaran Cannon welcomed the funding, and commended Tidy Towns groups for their continued great work in the local communities.
“I’m delighted to see the ongoing work of Tidy Towns groups in the region, among them the group in Woodford where old farm machinery has been given a new lease of life as freshly painted viewing features, celebrating the agricultural heritage of the district and improving local public spaces,” he said.
The Galway East TD encouraged members of the public and community groups in Galway to put forward suitable anti-litter and/or anti-graffiti projects for funding.
Minister Cannon added: “These grants are an important support for local enhancement initiatives and the closing date for receipt of proposals is Friday, 9th August 2019.”
