Funding Allocated For 171 Community Projects In Wicklow To Help Cover Running Costs

Wicklow County Council is to receive over €300,000 to fund 171 community projects under a Government scheme.

Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, and Minister of State with responsibility for Community Development and Charities, Joe O’Brien TD, announced the successful projects in County Wicklow under the 2022 Community Support Fund.

 The fund was launched in November 2022 with funding of €10 million.

The key theme of the fund is to support groups, particularly in disadvantaged areas, with their energy bills, as well as with improvements to their facilities.

 The Community Support Fund is a once off fund provided by the Department of Rural and Community Development and administered by Local Community Development Committees, with support from the Local Authority, in each area.

It is targeted towards enhancing facilities in disadvantaged communities. It provides small grants to community groups in a manner consistent with each area’s Local Economic and Community Plan.
