Applications for Grants:
The Fund’s aim is to help people to help themselves and not to give hand-outs or create a dependency culture. Grants are made for development projects and are currently to a maximum of €8,000. However, in most cases it is less than this.
Those wishing to be considered for a grant should, in the first instance, write to the Fund providing a brief description (strictly no more than two A4 pages) of:-
- their organisation
- the area, including the need for the proposed project
- the project itself including the total cost, the local contribution (if any) and the amount required.
Following initial consideration (which will only occur when the directions above are followed), a Grant Application Form may be forwarded to the applicant for completion and return.
