LEADER Community

LEADER for Community

LEADER wants to build strong, resilient and inclusive communities in Co. Clare.
Supports which can help communities include:
• Area based planning for communities – 50 Clare communities will be supported to create their own plan for their community
• Capital grants to fund community projects and services which build stronger communities
• Training and networking supports to build community leadership and capacity
• Area based strategies and capital funding for Kilrush, Ennistymon and Scarriff Market Towns
• Small scale capital grants to enhance access to rural broadband
