There are two elements to this scheme in 2020 as follows:


1.  Town and Village Renewal Scheme

This scheme aims to rejuvenate rural towns and villages with a focus on supporting public realm type activities and the enhancing of town centre amenities, particularly where this aids the social or economic recovery of a town or village. All projects must be in a position to commence as soon as approval is granted and be capable of being delivered within a 12 to 18 month period. Closing date for expressions of interest: 5pm Friday 3rd July 2020.


2.  Town and Village Accelerated Covid 19 Measure

The objective of the Accelerated Measure is to assist the delivery of projects that address the short-term challenges of increasing footfall in rural villages and towns and assisting local businesses/communities to adapt to public health requirements, particularly social distancing.

The maximum level of funding per project is €25,000, funding of €40,000 will be considered for a small number of high impact projects. Closing date for expressions of interest: 5pm Wednesday 24th June 2020
