- Investing in green spaces, parks and recreational amenities
- Upgrading and improving shop fronts & streetscapes on Main Streets
- Projects that support and enhance the night time economy and add vibrancy to town centres
Kerry County Council at this early stage is trying to ascertain the potential level of interest and the type/nature of projects that may be eligible under the scheme.

- Any extension of the closing date cannot be facilitated in any circumstance.
- The process is competitive as there is a limit on the number of submissions that Kerry County Council can submit to the Department.
- The submission of an Expression of Interest does not guarantee a final application to the Department to consider the project for funding. Projects that are shortlisted to Application Stage will be formally notified by the Local Authority.
