€750,000 allocated to Community Groups and Projects across Kerry under Community Support Fund

Kerry County Council has announced details of the allocation of €750,000 in funding support for community groups and projects across the county under the Community Support Fund for 2023.  A total of 198 groups and projects received grant aid worth €256,000 this year while a proportion of the fund, totalling €494,000 is being retained to leverage funding from other funding streams for strategic projects at Municipal District level.

Since 2020, over €40 million was leveraged from other national grant sources as a result of the strategic allocation of resources under the Community Support Fund.

The fund, which is in its ninth year, has now supported 1,974 projects since 2015 to the value of €6.256m.  As occurred in previous years, some of the Community Support Fund will be used this year to target strategic projects in the five municipal districts and to co-fund projects which are in receipt of grants from other sources.

Councillors in the five Municipal Districts met during the past week to decide on the allocations and unanimously welcomed the provision of support to the recipients. Councillors congratulated all the community groups and acknowledged the tremendous voluntary work that these groups do.

For 2023, the fund will build on this and target funding under four categories of support:

  • Rebuilding and Reconnecting Communities
  • Community Tidy Town Initiatives and Amenity Projects
  • Community Economic Innovation
  • Community Based Tourism, Festivals and Events

Full details of the Community Support Fund allocations in each of the five Municipal Districts are available below.
