Town & Village Renewal Scheme 2018
The Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2018 has recently been launched by Minister of State for Regional Economic Development, Michael Ring, TD. For 2018, there will be €15 million in funding for rural towns and villages for projects.
The scheme is specifically targeted at rural towns and villages with populations of less than 10,000. Applications from towns can range from €20,000 to a maximum of €100,000. Funding of up to €200,000 will also be considered for a limited number of projects which can deliver exceptionally strong economic benefit to a town and its outlying areas.
Sligo County Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from town/village groups and business interests who may have a suitable project for consideration under the scheme. All expressions of interest will be assessed based on the priorities as contained in the Scheme Outline, after the closing date and a maximum of 12 proposals will be selected for development into detailed applications which will be submitted to the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.
All interested town/village groups and business interests should complete the Expression of Interest form and return to the Community & Economic Development Section, Sligo County Council, City Hall, Quay Street, Sligo, F91 PP44 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 4.00pm on Thursday 31st May 2018.
