Tenant committees make decisions about using the funds granted for tenant activities. Together with the tenant committee advisory board, they discuss common issues related to TOAS, such as the leveling of rent, rules and regulations and the election of tenant representatives to TOAS bodies.
Many tenant committees organise their own events and evening entertainment for the tenant community.
We have seen Christmas parties, barbecue parties, voluntary garden work and much more. Clubrooms are intended for the tenants’ social activities, and tenant committees may obtain their own furniture, pool tables, beamers and so on.
You can find the contact information for your tenant committee on the noticeboard of your site.
The Tenant Activity Activator
The tenant activity activator is a TOAS grant for the implementation of a project to improve living or community spirit.
€1,500 in grants is distributed annually as a general project grant and as an incentive grant.
An incentive grant is awarded for high-quality tenant activity in general.
Any tenant may come up with an idea for a project or event to improve tenant activity. One may apply for a grant for all of the expenses of the project or a part of them.
The tenant committee advisory board processes applications twice a year. Applications for the spring must be submitted by the end of March, and applications for the winter by the end of October.
The application can be a text document or maybe a video. Whatever describes your idea best!
The application must include information about the applicants, the idea and an estimate of costs. If a grant is awarded, a short report must be submitted on its implementation.
For more information about applying for a grant, contact your own tenant committee.
