SICAP 2018–2023 is the successor programme to SICAP 2015-2017.

The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2018-2023 is co-funded by the Government of Ireland, through the Department of Rural and Community Development and the European Union and is overseen locally by Longford Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) with support from Longford County Council.
