Naughten announces almost €20,000 for local environmental projects


The Local Agenda 21 Environmental Partnership Fund supports local environmental initiatives by communities, individuals and not-for-profit groups. Under this Scheme Minister Denis Naughten has approved an allocation of almost €20,000 for small-scale environmental projects at local level across Roscommon.

  A total nationwide funding of €460,000 to this year’s scheme was allocated by Minister Naughten, which is an increase of 15% on funding in 2016. Local Authorities have drawn down this allocation which they will match bringing the total LA21 project funding this year to €908,000. 834 projects are being funded under the 2017 scheme, which is an increase of over 100 projects on 2016.
