If successful your community will be offered a place on the programme providing:

  • Access to skilled development workers for 12 months

The application should be made in the name of an existing community group. If there is no community structure in place in your community you will need to get other members of your community together to ensure you have some consensus in participating in the project. Members of your community will need to be available for workshops, training and events in 2018.

Cost: €330 per community (10% of the full project cost, 90% funded through LEADER)
