€141,343 for 67 local projects in Wicklow under the Community Enhancement Programme

Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys and Minister of State for Community Development and Charities, Joe O’Brien have today announced the successful projects in Wicklow under the 2021 Community Enhancement Programme.

The 2021 Community Enhancement Programme was launched in May 2021 with funding of €4.5m to provide small grants to local community groups across the country. Wicklow received an allocation of €141,343 from the Department under the programme.

The key theme of this year’s programme was supporting groups as they re-open facilities which have been closed due to COVID-19. These could include facilities such as community centres, men’s and women’s sheds, parish halls and youth centres.

Speaking in support of the funding, Wicklow Minister Simon Harris said:
“I am delighted to see funding announced for 67 local projects across County Wicklow. These grants can make a big difference by supporting communities at a grassroots level. After a difficult year, it is important that we provide support to community groups where possible, allowing them to continue to provide much needed services in local communities.”
