In June 2020, Round 1 of the Dublin City Community Enhancement Programme 2020 was launched by the Minister and was live on Dublin City Council’s website for applications from 5th to 28th August, 2020. These applications are currently going through the assessment process.
Round 2 of the Dublin City Community Enhancement Programme 2020 was announced by the Minister on 10th August. This funding was made available under the Government’s July Stimulus Package and is targeted at measures that stimulate local economies, while enhancing facilities in disadvantaged areas.
A total of €478,005 is available in 2020 under Round 2 for groups in Dublin City.
The LCDC, under Round 2 of the Community Enhancement Programme 2020, is now inviting applications from community or voluntary groups and not-for-profit organisations for capital funding. Applications for funding must clearly demonstrate how the funding will contribute to Goal 2 of the Dublin City Local Economic and Community Plan 2016-2021:
