  • The Community Grant Scheme is a scheme of small grants open to community groups to implement projects that will result in greater social and community activity in their area such as small scale amenity projects, purchase of equipment for community halls/groups, materials, etc.  This scheme is aimed at groups who have limited fund raising opportunities and the majority of grants awarded are in the region of €200 - €500. 


  • The Festival & Events Grant Scheme  -  Cavan County Council recognises the contribution that Festivals and Events make to the lives of the people of the county and this grant scheme aims to assist those events that have a tourism or community focus.   Funding is limited to a maximum of €1,000.


Please note that the level of funding awarded in both schemes is dependent on the number and type of applications received in each Municipal District and only groups who have not received funding for the past 3 years in succession are eligible to apply.

Application forms and further details may be obtained by phoning 049 437 8587, emailing, at your local Municipal District Office, or at the links below:
