Social Enterprise Capital Grants Scheme 2021

On 6th September 2021, the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys T.D., announced details of funding of €1m to be allocated nationally to the Dormant Accounts Funded Social Enterprise Capital Grants Scheme 2021.

 

The Social Enterprise Capital Grants Scheme 2021 is an initiative being taken by the Department of Rural and Community Development under the Policy to support social enterprises and is complementary to other supports provided by the Department.

 

It is anticipated that the small scale nature of the grants under this scheme will particularly benefit smaller or start-up social enterprises which do not necessarily have the capacity to compete for larger grants, but which nonetheless have a need for upgraded/additional equipment to help them to deliver their services.

 

The scheme is being administered on behalf of the Department of Rural and Community Development by the network of Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) across the country.

 

Please note that, in line with Dormant Accounts Fund legislation, the Minister for Rural and Community Development must approve each project before funding is awarded.

 

The attached application form includes criteria, Terms & Conditions and information on applicant suitability. Please note the Terms & Conditions must be strictly adhered to.

 

Please send completed applications by email to communitygrants@westmeathcoco.ie or by post to Westmeath County Council, Community Development Dept. – Social Enterprise Capital Grant, Áras an Chontae, Mount St, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath N91 FH4N.
