The online registration process is now open.

Local community groups and organisations in Co. Kildare should register and apply for a new round of funding for the upgrade and refurbishment of community centres, according Kildare South TD Minister Martin Heydon.

The Community Centre Investment Fund will provide grants of between €10,000 up to a maximum of €300,000.

Funding is available for capital works such as improvements to communal facilities including kitchen and toilet facilities, energy retrofitting, new windows, doors, heating systems, works to address safety concerns and works to improve disability access.

All interested applicants in Kildare must register online.

Registration opened this week for the fund, and must be completed prior to submitting a formal application.

The formal application process will open on Tuesday 7th June and closes on Thursday 14th July 2022.

Minister Heather Humphreys has announced that her Department will host online information sessions on Wednesday 18th May 2:30 – 4pm and Wednesday 1st June 2:30 – 4pm. 

“I would strongly encourage local groups and organisations in Kildare to attend these information sessions and learn about the application process and criteria before submitting their formal application," said Minister Heydon.

Applicants can register to attend an information session here.

Minister Heydon said: “Registration opened this week for the new €15m capital fund for the upgrade and refurbishment of Community Centres.

 “Completing these two important steps will help to ensure your organisation is well placed to submit a strong application to this Fund.

“Our local community centres and parish halls are the heart of our towns, villages and parishes.

"I am encouraging all community groups to look at this fund and think about how they can use it to improve their own local parish hall or community centre," concluded Minister Heydon.
