Galway to receive €118,000 in Community Enhancement Programme

A total of €118,000 has been allocated to Galway under the Community Enhancement Programme (CEP) which will provide €2 million to local authorities across the country.

Galway City Council will receive €55,368 and Galway County will get €63,249 to support projects which benefit the community.

This money can be used to renovate community centres, make improvements to town parks, and buy equipment for the community. The Programme has also supported energy efficient upgrades, the development of community gardens, the provision of defibrillators, CCTV, and sports equipment.

Minister Ciarán Cannon said he is ‘delighted’ with the announcement of €2 million for councils across Ireland to make improvements to their communities.

“The CEP provides vital support to community groups in order to help them improve their facilities and supports small-scale funding for projects which range from purchasing lawnmowers and IT equipment to minor renovations to buildings,” said the East Galway TD.

“The Programme responds to local needs and therefore it also provides some funding towards larger projects where needed”.

“The CEP is administered by Local Community Development Committees in each Local Authority area and details on how to apply will be available shortly”.
