Grants scheme for Local Community Groups Launched (closing 30th June)

This scheme is to enhance communities, address disadvantage and improve social cohesion at a local level by providing access to small-scale capital grants.  An allocation of €64,500 has been made available to Cavan County Council for the scheme in Budget 2017.

Under the scheme community and voluntary groups may apply for a grant  in general up to €1000 for capital projects which benefit the local community. 

Applications should relate to at least one key target group and thematic area in order to be eligible for consideration e.g. youth, older people, projects promoting integration. Projects or elements of projects of a capital nature may be funded, for example, office equipment, project resources, research facilities, energy efficiency equipment, etc.

 The scheme is being administered by the Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) along with the Municipal Districts under the remit of the Local Authorities (LAs). 

 Local Authorities, on behalf of the Local Community Development Committees, will make payments directly to the successful groups as required.  Applications are now being invited for funding under this Scheme.      

Closing date for applications is Friday 30th June 2017 at 5pm. Application forms can be obtained by emailing
