Covid 19 Emergency Fund

An emergency fund has been established to financially aid to groups directly involved in Community Call response efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Department of Rural and Community Development (the Department) is funding the grant and it will be administered by the Local Authority (LA) in each area.

The Department will send funds to each local authority area, which will then be distributed to groups by their local authority to ensure funding is targeted appropriately.

It is intended that the majority of the funding that is allocated to each local authority area will be ring-fenced for grants of €1,000 or less.

Applications can be made (by groups directly involved in the Community Call response) to the relevant local authority.
