LEADER - Funding for Enterprise and Community Projects

Funding is currently available under the Transitional LEADER Programme in Co. Roscommon. The programme aims to work closely with businesses, communities and individuals, particularly new applicants, to assist with building their capacity in preparation for the next programming period. Priority will be given to promote projects which support rural enterprises and communities in a post-COVID/post Brexit environment. The funding will also support job creation, entrepreneurship, enterprise development and innovation, as well as exploring and developing projects for funding in thematic areas which are likely to feature strongly in the next EU-funded programme, such as the Smart Village Initiative.

 

At the end of July, Roscommon Local Community Development Committee became one of the first Local Action Groups in the country to approve funding for projects under the Transitional LEADER Programme (TLP). This is a new National Programme, announced by Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, T.D., in December 2020. The National Transitional LEADER Programme, to be delivered through the current Local Action Group, Roscommon Local Community Development Committee (RLCDC) and the Implementing Partner, Roscommon LEADER Partnership (RLP), has an overall national budget of €20 million. Fifteen projects were approved total grant aid of €612,819 by Roscommon LCDC in July.

Deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest is 3.00pm on Friday, 27/08/2021.
