galway daily news Grant scheme open for community festivals in the city

Communities in Galway City looking to throw themselves a little celebration can get grant funding from the city council.

The City Council is inviting applications for the Local Community Festivals Grant Scheme for 2022.

Communities planning festivals or events in their areas in the city in the coming months may be eligible for a small scale grant to help grease the wheels.

The Council will support festivals or events which are organised and run by local residents as a way to reconnect the local community to encourage, support and celebrate participation in neighbourhoods across Galway City.

There is a total of €15,000 available for the scheme this year, with a closing date for application of Friday, July 1.

Applications can be made online at https://www.galwaycity.ie/lcf, and any further queries directed to Emma Johnston at candc@galwaycity.ie.
