Local Enhancement Programme Funding 2024


The Department of Rural and Community Development Local Enhancement Programme (LEP) 2024 will provide small scale capital funding to support community groups across Mayo, with a separate ring-fenced fund available to Womens Groups under the Programme.

There will be a particular focus on small capital works/improvements, and the purchase of equipment for community use. The funding may be used, but is not limited to; improved access for persons with a disability; enhancing community participation for disadvantaged and marginalised groups, and improving energy efficiency of community facilities to reduce ongoing costs.

The scheme is designed to ensure local priorities are identified and met, so as to improve and enhance community facilities for all.
