Call out for ideas or projects for Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2021

Do you have a project or idea that would support the renewal of your town of village across Limerick? Limerick City and County Council is seeking expressions of interest from town or village community groups as well as business interests who may have suitable projects for consideration under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2021.

The scheme is targeted at towns and villages with a population of 10,000 or less and all projects funded must be completed within a 12 to 18 month period.

This year the scheme will place particular emphasis on projects supporting remote working and enhancing town centre living as outlined in Our Rural Future – Ireland’s Rural Development Policy 2021-2025.

The scheme will support these objectives and will encourage more people to return confidently to town and village centres to work, shop and socialise.

A maximum of eight proposals can be selected for progression to full application stage. The minimum grant funding available is €20,000 and the maximum grant funding available is €500,000.
