Community and Voluntary Grant Scheme 2022

Cavan County Council is inviting applications for Round 2 of funding for Community and Voluntary Grant Scheme for the Bailieborough-Cootehill and Ballyjamesduff Municipal District Area only.

The Community and Voluntary 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.

Please note that the level of funding awarded under the scheme 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 three years in succession are eligible to apply.
