Community Activities Fund


Ministers Heather Humpreys and Joe O'Brien announce €9 million Fund to support community groups impacted by CODID-19

  • Fund to provide small grants for community groups impacted by the Pandemic

  • Facilities such as community centres, men’s and women’s sheds, parish halls and youth centres to be supported

  • Supporting community groups a key focus of ‘Our Rural Future’


The Community Activities Fund will support groups, particularly in disadvantaged areas, with their running costs such as utility or insurance bills, as well as with improvements to their facilities.

Groups will also be able to use the funding to carry out necessary repairs and to purchase equipment such as tables and chairs, tools and signage, laptops and printers, lawnmowers, canopies and training equipment.

The once-off fund will be allocated under the Department’s Community Enhancement Programme and will be administered locally by the Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs).
