Who can apply for the Community and Cultural Facilities Capital Scheme?
The scheme is open to groups operating within the Community Sector who have a recognised legal structure, operate on a 'not for profit' basis, demonstrate a policy of inclusion and demonstrate the capacity to manage and operate the proposed facilities.
Examples of projects eligible for support could include the development of open spaces, walks and parklands; play areas, broad based recreational facilities, community arts projects and projects that conserve the built and natural heritage of the county.

Funding is at a rate of 75% of the total eligible project costs up to a maximum of €45,000. The grant beneficiary will have to provide the remaining 25% match funding. The minimum grant size available is €9000. That means that the total eligible project costs must be at least €12,000.
