Community facilities scheme funding
FIFTEEN group from within the Wicklow Municipal District will receive funding under the Community Facilities Scheme 2017.
Wicklow County Council received 77 applications to the scheme before June’s deadline, with 11 of them deemed not eligible.
The funding has to be drawn down before the end of September. 15 groups in the district, ranging from sporting to community organisations, will share €14,510. The largest amount any group was allowed was €1,000.
Cathaoirleach, Cllr Shay Cullen, said; ‘It’s fantastic that we have over €14,000 for groups in the district. They are very worthy causes. So much work was done by these voluntary groups and its great to be able to show our support.’
