Applications are now being welcomed under the Community Involvement Scheme which helps to fund the repair and/or upgrade of local roads in the county. 

This scheme is a joint venture between the local community  and Leitrim County Council. Under the scheme the local community make a partial monetary contribution towards the cost of the road works and Leitrim County Council undertake the work. 

The contribution required will range between 15% – 30% of the cost of the repair/upgrade of the road.  Each local community applying for this scheme will be required to appoint a spokesperson to act on their behalf.  If your application is successful and your road is included in this scheme, payment of the full local contribution will be required in advance of any works commencing.
