Just over 100 community projects in Donegal will share €159,461 under the Community Enhancement Programme (CEP).
Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, today announced the successful projects in Donegal.
The 2021 Community Enhancement Programme was launched in May with funding of €4.5m to provide small grants to local community groups across the country.
The key theme of this year’s programme was supporting groups as they reopen facilities which have been closed due to COVID-19. These could include facilities such as community centres, men’s and women’s sheds, parish halls and youth centres.
The CEP is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development and administered by Local Community Development Committees, with support from their Local Authority, in each area.

Announcing the successful projects for Donegal today, Minister Humphreys said:
“I am delighted to announce funding for 101 local projects across County Donegal today as part of my Department’s Community Enhancement Programme.”
“Through Our Rural Future, I want to support locally led, ground-up projects in local communities across the country. While these grants are small in nature, they can make a big difference by allowing local community organisations to carry out much needed works in their area.”
“I want to thank the Local Community Development Committee, and the Local Authority in Donegal who administer the Community Enhancement Programme on behalf of my Department.”
