Inishowen communities urged to apply for funding 11.06.20

DONEGAL County Council invite expressions of interest from Inishowen for project proposals through the Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2020 and CLAR 2020. These funding programmes support rural economies and communities in their post-COVID recovery and help them adapt to how they do business and how people come together safely.
Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council Cllr Nicholas Crossan welcomes the funding announcement saying: "Our towns and villages across Donegal are at the heart of economic activity. Our communities in Donegal are working harder than ever. These funding programmes are timely and welcome and will help community groups and business deal with the challenges faced by COVID-19, supporting economic and social recovery in the county."
Director of Community Development, Liam Ward, acknowledged and thanked the community stating: "The Town and Village Renewal Scheme and CLÁR Programme have, over a number of years, helped rejuvenate rural towns and villages across the county and in addressing population decline. This year particularly will provide much needed support which will go some way to assist the economic and social recovery of our towns and villages in addressing the challenges posed by Covid-19. Working with our communities we, as a local authority are better placed to inform the regeneration of the places where we live and work and the places we call home and this funding will allow us to continue working in this coordinated and collaborative way, working with and supporting our communities.’

Expressions of interest are now invited from Inishowen communities for project proposals in towns and villages with a focus on interventions that can:

• Respond to the new challenges associated with COVID-19
• Assist the economic and social recovery of our towns and villages
• Enhance the places we live and work
