Community Enhancement Programme
The Department of Rural and Community Development (“the Department”) funds the Community Activities Fund (CAF) which provides funding to support community groups across Ireland.
The Community Activities Fund will support groups, particularly in disadvantaged areas with their non-pay running costs for example utility bills (electricity costs, refuse charges, heating charges) or other non-pay operating costs for example rental/lease costs, insurance bills. Groups will also be able to use the funding to carry out necessary repairs and improvements to their facilities, purchase equipment for example tables and chairs, tools and signage, laptops and printers, lawnmowers, canopies and training equipment etc.
It is administered by Galway City Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) for the Galway City area.
The Community Activities Fund (CAF) is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development.
