43 Kilkenny projects awarded funding under Community Enhancement Programme

List of small grants to benefit community groups across Kilkenny

KILKENNY

Funding has been announced

Fine Gael TD John Paul Phelan has welcomed news that 43 locally-led projects in Kilkenny will benefit under the 2021 Community Enhancement Programme.

The 2021 Community Enhancement Programme was launched in May 2021 with funding of €4.5 million to provide small grants to local community groups across the country. Kilkenny received an allocation of €136,319 from the Department under the programme.

“The key theme of this year’s programme was supporting groups as they re-open facilities which have been closed due to Covid-19”, Deputy Phelan says.

“These ground-up projects could include facilities such as community centres, men’s and women’s sheds, parish halls and youth centres. While these grants are small in nature, they can make a big difference by allowing local community organisations to carry out much needed works in their area.”
