Com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity scheme over-sub­scribed

The Argus - - NEWS -

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.
