Heritage of Clare
The Heritage Council Grant Programme
The Heritage Council offer grants annually, usually in October each year.
In October 2011, applications were invited for funding under the following
schemes for 2012:
Clare Local Development Company (CLDC)
CLDC administers the LEADER RDP Programme 2007-2013 in Co. Clare and
allocates funding to eligible projects. The role of the LEADER RDP is
to stimulate new innovative ideas and offer practical support to businesses,
farm families and community groups in getting their ideas off the ground.
The current programme provides attractive incentives for new micro-enterprise
projects. It provides support for farm-diversification projects into non-agricultural
activities, business creation and development as well as opportunities
in rural recreation and rural tourism, all of which are vital to the rural
economy of Co. Clare.
Local Agenda 21 Environmental Partnership Fund
The aim of this grant is to facilitate sustainable development at a community
and local level including County Clare. It is desirable that projects
