Applications for Grants

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:-

  1. their organisation
  2. the area, including the need for the proposed project
  3. 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.
