Monaghan Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) will administer the recently launched RAPID Programme for 2017 in the county.
The Programme is focused on tackling social exclusion and improving the quality of life for residents in disadvantaged urban areas and provincial towns. Under the programme, eligible groups/ organisations may apply for grants for capital projects or elements of projects which would improve the quality of life for residents in disadvantaged urban areas. The total amount of funding available for 2017 is €64,500.
Applications should relate to at least one key target group and thematic area in order to be eligible for consideration e.g. youth, older people, or projects promoting integration.
Monaghan County Council, on behalf of the LCDC, will make payments directly to the successful groups, expected to be in December 2017.
