Local Government Communities Facilties Scheme 2017

Local Government Communities Facilties Scheme 2017

Tipperary Local Community Development Committee seeking applications from community groups for funding under the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government’s Communities Facilities Scheme 2017 On 10th March 2017, the Minister of State for Communities and the National Drugs Strategy, Catherine Byrne TD, announced a new Capital grants scheme for disadvantaged urban and rural areas. The Scheme will run initially from July 2017-December 2017 and is focused on providing small-scale capital grants to help grass roots community projects get underway or take the next step towards completion. In County Tipperary the Scheme is being administered, on behalf of the Department, by Tipperary Local Community Development Committee along with the five Municipal Districts of Tipperary County Council. The aim of the Scheme is to enhance communities, address disadvantage and improve social cohesion at a local level by providing access to small-scale capital grants. The Scheme will offer grants up to a maximum of €1,000 per project. The maximum amount of €1,000 is small, acknowledging that there would be other grant schemes for larger works. This would cover the cost of, for example, office equipment, project resources, research facilities or maintenance of premises, etc. for voluntary groups. Applications are now being invited for funding under this Scheme. The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Friday 30th June 2017 at 5pm. Late applications will NOT be accepted. It is anticipated that Municipal Districts will make their final decision to approve or deny applications at their meetings during September 2017. The Application Form and a Scheme Guidelines Document are now available for download here on Tipperary County Council’s website.
