The 2nd round of the COVID-19 Emergency Fund is now being launched.
The COVID-19 Emergency Fund is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development and administered by the Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) in each Local Authority area.
This round will provide grants to community groups to assist them:
- to adapt their services and operations to fit the new COVID-19 reality. Examples of measures supported could be adapting premises to allow for social distancing; offering on-line activities; providing social supports and friendly calls by phone etc.
- to become more involved in the Government’s ‘Keep Well’ campaign. The grants are aimed at assisting participation in the campaign, in particular with the three themes: staying connected, switching off and being creative, and minding your mood.
The fund is being administered by Meath County Council who is inviting groups registered with MeathPPN to submit an application.
Please find attached the fund application form and guidelines.
The closing date for the receipt of applications is 5pm Wednesday 27th January 2021.
