Town Centre First funds available for Waterford town and villages

Waterford City & County Council are seeking expressions of interest from established village/town committees seeking assistance with developing their local town/village development.

Town Centre First funds are available for a project development measure; development of these proposals must be undertaken in consultation with the Councils appointed Town Regeneration Officer and local town/village community and business interests. Ideally, projects will have been identified as part of a town plan, health check or similar study, produced for the town or village. Projects that cannot demonstrate that a consultative process has been undertaken to ascertain the views of local community and businesses will not be permitted.

Funding may be awarded for costs such as detailed design, planning, procurement, professional fees, assessments, and other development costs.
This initiative will compliment other funding initiatives within the Department, including the Town and Village Renewal Scheme and the Rural Regeneration Development Fund.

Maximum funding amount available is €50,000 per project with a grant rate of 90% of the total project costs.  Two applications from Waterford will be forwarded to the Department of Rural and Community Development for consideration of approval.

The expression of interest form should be completed with supporting documentation etc and emailed back to by 4.00pm, Wednesday 20th March 2024.  Late applications cannot be considered.
