Communities Facilities Capital Grant Scheme 2017

Applications are invited by Laois Local Community Development Committee and Laois County Council under this Scheme.

The aim of the Scheme is focused on providing access to small-scale capital grants to enhance communities, address disadvantage and improve social cohesion.

In general, the Scheme will offer grants up to a maximum of €1,000 per project.  However, the Local Community Development Committee will use its discretion to exceed this limit, where it believes the project requires the additional funding to be delivered successfully. Match funding is not a requirement for approval.

Deadline for receipt of completed applications is Friday 30th June 2017 at 4.00pm.
Late applications will NOT be accepted.

An Application Form and a Scheme Guidelines Document are now available from:
