Fingal Community Groups invited to apply for Community Activities Funding

Community and voluntary groups in Fingal are invited to apply for funding under the 2022 Community Activities Fund.

The Community Activities Fund is a once-off fund that provides grants to assist community and voluntary groups with facilities upgrades, equipment purchase and running costs. The CAF is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development with Fingal allocated €301,042 in funding for groups across the county.

The Community Activities Fund can support groups, particularly in disadvantaged areas with:

  • Operating and running costs such as utility bills, rental/lease costs and insurance bills.
  • The cost of repairs and improvements to facilities, purchase of I.T. equipment, furniture, tools, signage, training equipment etc.

The CAF is administered by Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) in each Local Authority area. The CAF is part of the wider Community Enhancement Programme, which has funded over 8,000 projects in urban and rural communities throughout Ireland since first being launched in 2018. Applications are now being sought from community and voluntary groups in Fingal for grants up to a maximum of €15,000 with a closing date for applications of Friday, February 18, 2022 at 6:00 PM
