dlr County Council approve €154k in the second round of their Grants Scheme for 2018
At the July Meeting, the County Council agreed to provide €154k in grant funding to 121 projects across community, business attraction, arts, sports and winter events.
The purpose of the dlr Grant Scheme is to provide financial support to individuals, groups and organisations engaged in projects, events or developments at local or county level within the County. These projects are designed to enhance the quality of life and wellbeing of communities and people living in the County and also provide opportunities for economic growth and jobs that is at the heart of the Council’s Corporate Plan.
Since 2014, the County Council has awarded over €3m in grants. These grants empower communities, business and organisation to deliver on projects that will enhance community wellbeing that is so important for a thriving County.
An Cathaoirleach, Councillor Ossian Smyth said “I am delighted that the grants have been awarded across a number of categories and across the entire County from Dun Laoghaire, Dundrum, Glencullen-Sandyford, Stillorgan, Blackrock and Killiney-Shankill. The grants play a key role in shaping a better future for our County and all of its communities”.
Successful applicants are required to recognise the County Council’s support in their publicity promoting the projects.
Ten public information meetings were held across the County in March and April 2018 to provide advice in relation to the grant process and promote those opportunities. Details were published in local newspapers, on the dlr website, through the dlr social media platforms and through the Public Participation Network.
