Town & Village Scheme 2020
Call for Expressions of Interest
Town & Village Renewal Scheme 2020
Kerry County Council is seeking ‘Expressions of Interests’ from groups/organisations who may have suitable projects for consideration under the Town & Village Renewal Scheme 2020. This scheme has been developed by the Department of Rural and Community Development to support measures which rejuvenate rural and urban towns and villages throughout Ireland. This year, the Town & Village Renewal Scheme is being tailored to address the emerging challenges associated with COVID-19.
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 schemes.
All Expressions of Interest will be assessed based on the priorities as contained in the Scheme Outline.
Town & Village Renewal Scheme 2020:
Projects funded under the 2020 Scheme must demonstrate a clear benefit and visible impact for the town/village concerned making them more attractive places in which to live and work, and to increase their tourism potential. The scheme will provide funding for a broad range of strategic proposals to support towns and villages. This year the scheme has been adapted in response to COVID-19 with a focus on interventions that can respond to the new challenges associated with COVID-19 and support the economic and social recovery of rural towns and villages. Only proposals that are capable of being delivered within a realistic timeframe should be submitted. Successful proposals must demonstrate close collaboration between communities and business interests in the design and delivery of proposed projects and must have the support of the Local Authority.
All interested groups/organisations must complete an Expression of Interest Form and return to the Community Department, Kerry County Council, Rathass, Tralee or email to [email protected] no later than 5 p.m. on Friday 10h July, 2020.
Please note that 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.
