The Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government (“the Department”) operates a communities facilities capital grant scheme through the Local Community Development Committees in order to support community participation and involvement. Under the scheme community and voluntary groups may apply for grants for capital projects which benefit the local community. Applications should relate to at least one key target group and thematic area in order to be eligible for consideration.

The funding available under the Scheme is for capital projects or elements of projects only. Current projects in part or full will not be funded. In cases where both current and capital works are carried out together, only the capital element can be funded through this Scheme.
