The Community Activities Fund (CAF) is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development (the Department) and administered by the Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) in each Local Authority area.
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown (DLR) LCDC has determined the maximum grant amount that will be awarded under this scheme is €10,000.
The Community Activities Fund Round 2 will support groups, particularly in disadvantaged areas
· With their non-pay running costs/operational costs such as
o Utility bills (electricity costs, refuse charges, heating charges)
o Rental / lease costs
o Insurance costs
o Software licences
o Programme operating costs (summer camps etc)
o other non-pay operating costs
o Website maintenance
o Audit & Accountancy fees
Please note that expenditure must have taken place between the 1st of July 2021 and the 30th of June 2022. Expenditure outside of this window cannot be considered.
This funding is about giving a helping hand to our communities, local groups and clubs.
The Department has recommended that LCDCs ring-fence some funding to provide small grants of €1,000 or less. Ring-fencing funding at this level will allow a larger volume of those with limited resources to receive some funding.
Round 2 Applications can be made to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown LCDC until 11.30pm Friday the 29th of July 2022 More information and application details here.
