Scheme for Eco-Gozo projects by Local Councils

The Ministry for Gozo has launched a funding scheme for Eco-Gozo projects by Local Councils. Through this scheme, Council and Administrative Committee may benefit from a grant of up to €70,000 for projects which enhance the sustainability of their locality.

Ramla bayThe eco-Gozo vision is based on the target of achieving high sustainable development standards for our island. Local councils represent communities at a local level. They are positioned well to respond to the needs of the localities they administer, and ensuring that action for the improvement of their communities' quality of life is effective. Therefore, the Ministry for Gozo is providing the opportunity for Local Councils to directly engage in the implementation of the eco-Gozo project, and more specifically in the short-term measures identified in the document "Eco-Gozo: A better Gozo Proposed action 2010-2012"

Applications for projects under this scheme will be accepted up to the 23rd December 2010.
