17 projects across Leitrim share over €1.3m

Breffni Family Resource and Community Development have been granted €127,000

This year over €1.3 million in funding has been allocated to 17 projects in Leitrim.

Deputy Tony McLoughlin welcomed the funding saying, “the CSP supports community-based organisations delivering vital services through a social enterprise model. It provides a contribution towards the cost of employing staff in CSP supported organisations. Some €46 million will be made available under the Programme nationally in 2019.

“These new additions in Co. Leitrim will be of great benefit to the local communities and the centres that will be able to hire new staff to assist them to continue their work in the community.
