Thirteen more organisations in Donegal have been allocated funding under the Covid-19 Stability Fund.
The third tranche of funding has been announced today, with almost €145,000 granted to Donegal groups.
The funding from the Dormant Accounts Fund is designed to support community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises that are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Once-off cash injections of between €2,000 and €200,000 are being awarded to qualifying organisations that provide critical services to those most vulnerable in society.
This will help with short term cash flow issues caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
The successful applicants today include:
The funding was announced today by Minister for Social Protection, Rural and Community Development and the Islands, Heather Humphreys TD, Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly TD and Minister of State with responsibility for Community Development and Charities, Joe O’Brien TD.
Six Donegal applicants secured funding in Tranche One, and 15 groups in the county were awarded funding in Tranche Two.
Due to the considerable interest in the COVID-19 Stability Fund and in order to ensure that funding is released as quickly as possible, applicants are being considered in smaller groupings and the funding being announced today is the third tranche. There remains a small number of organisations that have applied for funding where further checks are ongoing. Additional tranches will be announced shortly.
