What is it?
Wicklow Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) invites applications from community and voluntary groups and not-for-profit organisations for small scale capital projects that will enhance community facilities for individuals and communities that are impacted by disadvantage. The Community Enhancement Programme (CEP) is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development.
What does it fund?
Capital projects that comply with the objectives of County Wicklow’s Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) for the development of community facilities with small grants for repairs and renovations or costs associated with reopening of a facility post COVID-19 or the sustainability of the facility, including costs such as utility bills, etc.
There are two parts to this funding scheme:
1. Grants up to a maximum of €1,000 for small grassroots community projects that address disadvantage and fulfil the objectives of the LECP.
2. Larger grants greater than €1,000 for projects that can clearly demonstrate that they address disadvantage and fulfil the objectives of the LECP.
How to Apply?
Applications for funding can now be made under this Programme to County Wicklow LCDC by 4.00 p.m. on Friday 2nd July 2021.
