Westmeath council seeking applications for Community Call grant funding
The COVID-19 Emergency Fund is a grant programme to provide funding to groups that are directly involved in a Community response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development and administered by the local authorities.
Applications are sought from organisations directly involved in the Community Call response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The grants are for expenditure of a capital and/or expenditure of an operational nature related to the COVID-19 response work.
Westmeath County Council was allocated a total of €67,710 to allocate locally.
It is intended that the majority of the funding that is allocated to each project area will be for grants of €1,000 or less. The local authority will give priority to organisations which deliver frontline services.
Applications will be evaluated by the council to ensure eligibility. Projects must be in keeping with the ethos of the programme, which is to provide funding to groups that are directly involved in the Community Call response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applications can be made (by community and voluntary groups directly involved in the Community Call response) to Westmeath County Council, using the COVID-19 Emergency Fund Application only, via email or post
The application form is available on request and on the Council’s website.
