Financial assistance for community & voluntary groups and local organisations is available through Cork County Council’s Community Fund Scheme 2020.
This scheme is administered by the 8 Municipal District Offices around County Cork and there are three separate funding schemes depending on the nature and cost of your proposal. Cork County Council is committed to supporting local communities across County Cork.
Funding is available under this scheme for 3 distinctive project or proposal types:
- Capital Fund Scheme – for community groups, sporting and local organisations in County Cork who wish to undertake infrastructural projects costing over €20,000 that will improve the range or quality of community-based facilities within their area e.g. community halls, sporting facilities, etc.
- Community Contract – for Tidy Towns groups who work with Cork County Council on local works and projects, agreed with the Municipal District Officer and local Area Engineer that enhance the area in which the group is active. For the Community Contract it is strongly recommended that you contact your Area Engineer and Municipal District Officer to discuss your proposals before you apply.
- Amenity Fund Scheme – for community groups, sporting and local organisations in County Cork who wish to undertake projects or purchase equipment that directly benefits communities and meets particular needs. Projects being applied for under this scheme must cost less than €20,000
The 2020 Community Fund Scheme opens to applicants at 10am on Monday January 6th 2020 and the closing date for receipt of completed applications is 4pm on Friday 14th February 2020.
