COVID-19 Emergency Fund (2nd Round) Call for Applications for Funding

Galway City Council through the Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) invites applications under the 2nd round of COVID-19 Emergency Funding within the Galway City Administrative area from community groups/organisations.

Under the programme grants will be provided to community groups to assist them to adapt their services and operations to fit the new COVID-19 reality. Examples of measures supported could be adapting premises to allow for social distancing; offering on-line activities; providing social supports and friendly calls by phone etc.

Grants will also be provided to assist groups to become more involved in the Government's 'Keep Well' campaign. The grants are aimed at assisting participation in the campaign, in particular with the three themes: staying connected, switching off and being creative, and minding your mood. 

The grants may also be provided to support groups (including those involved in the Galway City Community Call) with day to day running costs if needed. Some funding is ring-fenced to provide small capital grants of €1,000 or less.

Applications can be completed online and guidelines are available to view at

The closing date for applications online under the COVID-19 Emergency Fund (2nd Round) is Friday, 5th February 2021 at 4.00pm.
