Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, and Minister of State with responsibility for Community Development and Charities, Joe O’Brien, have today announced the successful projects in Wicklow under the 2021 Community Activities Fund.
The 2021 Community Activities Fund was launched in November 2021 with funding of €9 million available. Wicklow received an allocation of €282,686 from the department under the fund. The key theme of the fund is to support groups, particularly in disadvantaged areas, with their running costs such as utility or insurance bills, as well as with improvements to their facilities.
The Community Activities Fund is a once off fund provided by the Department of Rural and Community Development and administered by Local Community Development Committees, with support from the Local Authority, in each area.
