For many years now, the SBA Administration has been aiding local communities, situated in and around the SBAs, in 2 ways:
a) By granting limited financial assistance to registered/elected community institutions, from a special fund called the Cyprus Community Relations Fund (CCRF), for the acquisition of necessary infrastructure items or the realisation of approved communal projects; and
b) By tasking visiting Royal Engineer (RE) teams, under the annual PINESTICK exercise, to provide technical assistance to approved communal projects, benefitting one or more communities, using military personnel, vehicles and other equipment, subject to-
1) Such projects having been deemed valuable training to the RE teams and duly approved, by their command; and
2) Beneficiary community(ies) undertaking the cost of materials, fuel and site-security, as well as providing any other assistance/assurance required by the RE command.
Interested community institutions may apply for such aid, by completing the appropriate application form, linked below, and forwarding it to the local Area Office, for due consideration.
