South Dublin County Council’s Community Grants Programme has opened for online applications. The programme provides financial assistance to community groups and sports clubs across the County who are responding to locally identified needs by providing a range of activities and services across their communities.
While a broad range of funding is provided annually through community grants including support for community development, sports development and community events, the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the delivery of community, voluntary and sporting activities is also recognised. To address these challenges and to be as adaptive and responsive as possible to current community needs, the 2021 Community Grants Programme provides additional grant supports including a Community Centre Re-opening Fund, Operational Supports for Sports Clubs Fund and a Covid Resilience Fund.
Further details, including the Community Grants explanatory booklet and details of how to access the online application forms, are available on the Council’s website. Groups and clubs wishing to make an application in need of additional support or information can contact the Community Development team by telephone at 01-4149156 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
