Funding to improve facilities in disadvantaged Kilkenny communities

Kilkenny County Council has received €58,150 in new funding to improve facilities for local communities in disadvantaged areas.

It is part of a €2 million fund allocated to local authorities across the county under the 2020 Community Enhancement Programme (CEP).

The CEP has a focus on supporting groups in disadvantaged areas. Typical enhancements under the programme include the renovation of community centres and amenities, improvements to town parks and common areas and spaces and the purchase of equipment for community use. The Programme has also supported energy efficient upgrades, development of community gardens, provision of defibrillators, CCTV, and sports and IT equipment.

Kilkenny TD John Paul Phelan (pictured below) said the Community Enhancement Programme [CEP] provides capital grants to community groups to improve amenities in disadvantaged areas.

Deputy Phelan added: “The CEP provides vital support to community groups in order to help them improve their facilities. I’m delighted to announce that €58,150 has been granted to Kilkenny and €56,628 to Carlow.

“It supports small-scale funding for projects which range from purchasing lawnmowers and IT equipment to minor renovations to buildings. Ultimately the Programme responds to local needs and therefore it also provides some funding towards larger projects where needed.

“We depend hugely on these community groups in Kilkenny and Carlow and I hope that this funding will help them to continue the important work that they carry out within our society.

“I urge communities throughout Kilkenny and Carlow to familiarise themselves with the CEP and to apply for funding if they feel that it can be of local benefit.”
