Over €2m in funding for local community groups

 

 

Over €2 million is being provided to 17 community organisations across Co. Roscommon under the 2019 Community Services Programme. The funding has been announced by Minister for Rural and Community Development, Michael Ring.

  Welcoming the funding, Senator Hopkins said: “The funds will support the staffing costs of community organisations which are run on a social enterprise model. This means that local organisations are being supported to provide services in our communities, where it otherwise may not be financially viable to do so”.
