Rural communities in Leitrim are major beneficiaries of the Community Enhancement Programme which was announced today by the Government.

"This Community Enhancement Programme has provided funding to communities to enhance facilities in rural areas. It was great to see the wide variety of local projects supported across the region," according to Senator Frank Feighan.

"This programme helps support important work by many communities.

The Minister for Rural and Community Development, Michael Ring said, "Having allocated over €12.5 million under the Community Enhancement Programme in 2018, I am delighted to be able to announce the more than 3,000 projects which are set to benefit from it. A relatively small amount of money can go a long way and this investment will greatly benefit local community projects throughout the country.

"The funding has been allocated in a way that takes deprivation levels into account and I am confident that those communities who need it most, whether in cities, towns or rural areas, will benefit."

The application process for the CEP is administered by Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) in each Local Authority area. There was an open application process when the CEP was originally launched in May.
