COVID 19 Emergency Fund For Community Groups

Longford Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) invites applications from community groups for funding under the Department of Rural & Community Development for the 2nd round of the COVID-19 Emergency Fund.

The grants are for community groups to assist them:

  • adapt their services and operations to fit the new COVID-19 reality. Examples of measures supported could be adapting premises to allow for social distancing; offering on-line activities; providing social supports and friendly calls by phone etc.
  • to become more involved in the Government's 'Keep Well' campaign. The grants are aimed at assisting participation in the campaign, in particular with the three themes: staying connected, switching off and being creative, and minding your mood. The grants may also be provided to support groups (including those involved in the community call) with day to day running costs if needed.

Closing date for applications, 12 noon on Monday 25th January, 2021
