Communities Facilities Scheme 2017
The Communities Facilities Scheme is targeted at disadvantaged urban and rural areas, but not exclusively so. It will fund projects that seek to enhance communities, address disadvantage and improve social cohesion at a local level. This scheme offers community groups access to capital funding in order to kickstart, advance or complete their projects. The scheme seeks to address some of the difficulties local community groups face in terms of accessing small scale levels of funding to match their own fundraising efforts. The scheme will offer grants up to a maximum of €1,000 per project.
All applicants must complete the application form below. Alternatively you can collect an application form at Waterford City & County Council Customer Service points at Bailey’s New Street or at the Civic Offices, Davitt’s Quay, Dungarvan.
