St Stephen’s Green Trust: Traveller Accommodation Grant Programme

Traveller Accommodation Grant Programme

St Stephen’s Green Trust invites applications for the Traveller Accommodation grant programme which seeks to make a contribution to the delivery of culturally appropriate, secure, quality accommodation for Travellers.

Grants will be made for work which: stimulates and strengthens activism at a local level, particularly among young Travellers; supports effective advocacy to improve practice; supports work (effective advocacy, knowledge or research) that leads directly to policy (including legislative) change.

Grant applications should focus on one or more of the following outcomes: strengthened support through organising and campaigning; improved awareness of and attitude towards the need for change in how accommodation is being delivered; strengthened alliances; improved policies, legislation and change to current practice in the delivery of accommodation.

There is a two-step process to apply for funding.

  • Step 1: The attached Expression of Interest form should be filled out and emailed to SSGT by Friday 14th September 2018. Short-listing will be carried out on the basis of the Expressions of Interest within two weeks and you will be notified of the outcome.
  • Step 2: If your Expression of Interest is shortlisted you will be required to submit a more detailed application which may involve meeting with us. A decision on the final selection of funded applications will be made by Friday 30th Nov 2018. There is a limited grant budget and we expect to fund six or seven organisations in total. Multiannual funding is available.
