Local Community Festivals Grant Awards Scheme 2016

May 4, 2016

Applications are invited for the Local Community Festivals Grant Awards Scheme 2016. Galway City Council will provide funding to support local community festivals in the city again this year. The purpose of this is to encourage, support and celebrate participation by local residents in community life in neighbourhoods around the city.

If your organisation is planning an event in your local area you may be eligible for a grant under this scheme. Grants will not be awarded for occasional or "once-off" events such as musical performances, national day celebrations or sports days.

This scheme is quite specifically designed to support small-scale local events organised by local people in 2016.

Application forms are now available from:

Community & Culture Department,
Galway City Council,
College Road, Galway

or to download from

Completed application forms should be returned to the above address by 27th May 2016
