LEADER Funding Call for Rural Youth projects now open

Rural Youth – Call for Projects under LEADER Programme  

Monaghan LEADER is announcing details of a time-limited call under the Rural Youth sub-theme that will open on 13th February 2017.  The Rural Youth sub theme is designed to support the provision of facilities/infrastructure, additional equipment and resources for new and existing facilities and groups that directly target Rural Youth.  For the purposes of the LEADER programme, Rural Youth are defined as people aged 15-35 years.  All projects need to be open and accessible for all members of the community.  A budget of €300,000 has been allocated for this call.

Interested groups are invited to attend an Information Event on:

Thursday, 16th February at 7pm

in Youth Work Ireland Monaghan, Wellbeing Centre, Bree Road, Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan

This free information event will give an overview of the types of project that may be eligible under this call, the rates of aid available, information on the Expression of Interest and Application process, and a presentation from a youth project who previously received LEADER funding.  There will also be an opportunity to talk to Development staff to discuss your project idea.

From 13th February 2017, interested groups can submit an Expression of Interest Form under this call that outlines their project proposal.  This is used to check if the project is eligible to progress to the full application stage.  Expression of Interest Forms and Expression of Interest Guidance Notes are available from http://www.midl.ie/index.php/leader/leader-application-process.

The closing date for this time limited call is Friday 10th March 2017, and in order to be considered for full application a fully completed Expression of Interest Form must be submitted to Monaghan LEADER, Monaghan Integrated Development CLG, Monaghan Road, Castleblayney, Co.
