On 27 July 2018 the Minister announced the provision of €500,000 funding for Men’s Sheds in Ireland.
The funding is a ring-fenced fund for Men’s Sheds under the Community Enhancement Programme. This €500,000 is in addition to the €4.5m that was previously provided for that programme.
The funding is for small capital grants for equipment and minor capital works.
Applications will be processed by the Local Community Development Committee in each area. They will publish information on how to apply and will also publish the application form. Click here to find your local LCDC.
Only Men’s Sheds that are affiliated with the Irish Men’s Sheds Association are eligible to apply for this ring-fenced funding. If you are a member of one of these sheds, then your association will be in touch with your shed to provide information on how to apply.
The closing date for applications is 31 August 2018.
