Community facility scheme over-subscribed
COUNCILLORS have approved a list for the 2017 Community Facilities Scheme, which was heavily over-subscribed with applications.
John Lawrence explained €64,500 was received in Louth, of which €29,000 is slated for Dundalk.
A number of applications were not able to be supported, as they fell short of the strict criteria.
Mr. Lawrence said the standard grant payment is €1,000, and the council will engage with those who were unsuccessful to see if alternative funding is available from the local authority’s own resources.
