The National Park Grant Scheme is open to individuals, businesses, public bodies and constituted voluntary/community groups or charities, providing that they have the right to, or approval to, undertake the proposals.
Applications from schools and other publicly-funded bodies will be considered; however grants will only be considered where the funding request is for items that are out-with normal operational matters.
Project proposals from property owners and commercial businesses will be considered only where public benefits can be clearly demonstrated.
Subsidiaries of larger organisations are not eligible to apply, unless a financial guarantee is provided by the parent organisation.
Applicants do not need to be based within the National Park, provided that the project is delivered within the National Park.
Board members and staff of the National Park Authority are not eligible to apply.
Applicants must disclose whether they have any family members working for the National Park Authority, together with the relationship and proximity of the employee to the grant being sought.
