About the Communities Facilities Scheme

Under the 2017 Communities Facilities Scheme, Community groups in disadvantaged urban and rural areas could apply for funding for relevant projects:

  • The Scheme had a national allocation of €2m for 2017, up to €1,000 per project.
  • It provided small-scale grants for community groups all across Ireland
  • It operated alongside other schemes and programmes already in place in communities, but groups could only use this funding for capital projects, or part of a capital project
