Town & Village Renewal Scheme 2017
Fingal County Council is now seeking Expressions of Interest from community groups and businesses in towns and villages in the county of Fingal for projects to be included in the Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2017.
Funding is provided through the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural, and Gaeltacht Affairs to support the revitalisation of towns and villages in order to improve the economic development of our rural towns and villages.
The 2017 scheme will be targeted at two categories of Towns/Villages, with 60% of funding being made available for category 1 towns:
Category 1: Towns and villages with a population of less than 5,000 people.
Category 2: Towns with a population of 5,001 to 10,000 people.
Grant Amounts Available
Up to 80% of the total cost of a project under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme will be provided for any individual project. The minimum grant which is available is €20,000 and the maximum is €100,000. A higher maximum of €200,000 will be considered for a limited number of projects where a robust case demonstrating exceptionally strong economic benefit to the town or village can be made.
Please note that emphasis will be placed on projects that have clear positive economic impacts on the town or village.
