2nd Round of the COVID-19 Emergency Fund

The Department of Rural and Community Development and Carlow Local Community Development Committee (Carlow LCDC) invites applications for grant funding under the 2nd Round of the COVID-19 Emergency Fund.

The COVID-19 Emergency Fund is designed to assist community-based organisations that are facing increased demands or additional costs due to the pandemic. Funding will be considered for groups to: –

– assist in community support as part of the Community Call effort e.g. meals on wheels; deliveries; phone calls etc.
– adapt their services and operations to fit the new COVID-19 reality. e.g. adapting premises; offering on-line activities; providing social supports and friendly calls by phone etc.
– become more involved in the Government’s ‘Keep Well’ campaign, in particular, with the three themes: staying connected, switching off and being creative, and minding your mood.

Applications should be typically for €1,000 or less but amounts greater will be considered if the community need is demonstrated.

Application forms and information are available on www.carlowcoco.ie or by contacting the Carlow LCDC, Community Section, Carlow County Council, County Buildings, Athy Road, Carlow and by e-mail community@carlowcoco.ie or telephone 059 – 913 6249.
