Press Release 10th December 2019
OVER €3.5M INVESTED IN OVER 1,500 COMMUNITY PROJECTS THROUGH KERRY COUNTY COUNCIL’S COMMUNITY SUPPORT FUND
KERRY COUNTY COUNCIL INVITES APPLICATION FOR 2020 COMMUNITY SUPPORT FUND
 
Since its establishment in 2015, the Kerry County Council Community Support Fund has provided funding of €3.5m to community groups and projects across the county. The Council has now issued a call for funding for the 2020 Community Support Fund which is offering supports of €750,000 to community-based projects and initiatives in Kerry.
The 2020 Community Support Fund was launched today by the Mayor of Kerry County Council, Cllr Niall Kelleher, and the Chief Executive of Kerry County Council, Moira Murrell.
The fund, which is now in its sixth year, has supported over 1,500 projects since 2015.  As occurred in 2017, 2018 & 2019 some of the Community Support Fund will be used again this coming year to target strategic projects in the five municipal districts and to co-fund projects which are in receipt of grants from other sources.
Over the past two years, over €3million was leveraged from other grant sources as a result of the strategic allocation of resources under the Community Support Fund.
For 2020, the fund will target funding under five categories of support:
Growing and Sustaining Communities
Community Tidy Towns Initiatives and Amenity Projects
Community Sport and Physical Activity Programmes
Community Economic Innovation
Community Based Tourism, Festivals and Events
 

The Mayor of Kerry County Council, Cllr Niall Kelleher, said: ‘Community Groups across the County have benefited from the Community Support Fund since its establishment in 2015, it is indicative of the council’s support for the work being done by community and voluntary organisations all over the county to build vibrant and sustainable communities.’
Chief Executive of Kerry County Council, Moira Murrell, said: ‘The retention of part of the fund to help to leverage funding from other sources and to co-fund projects with other funding streams has also  proven to be an enormous success in recent years.’
The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Monday, 20 January 2020 and application forms may be downloaded from the council’s website. Further information is available for Kerry County Council’s Community Department at 066 7183680.
