Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, and Minister of State with responsibility for Community Development and Charities, Joe O’Brien TD, have announced that over 3,000 projects have been supported through the 2020 Community Enhancement Programme (CEP).

The programme, funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development, is designed to support community groups, particularly in disadvantaged areas, through the provision of small capital grants.

Among the projects funded in 2020 include childcare groups and playgrounds, recreational groups, community gardens and premises, sports grounds and initiatives that support the elderly.

There were two rounds of this funding in 2020 – June and August – with a total of €7 million available to improve facilities.
