Kildare LCDC are inviting applications from Women's Sheds in Kildare for the Community Support Fund 2023 (CSF) towards their running/operating costs.
The Community Support Fund provides funding to community and voluntary groups and organisations in disadvantaged areas/target disadvantaged groups.
The CSF is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development and administered by the Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) in each local authority area.
Kildare LCDC has been allocated €3,328 specifically for Women's Sheds for use towards running/operating costs (electricity costs, refuse charges, heating charges or other non-pay operating costs e.g. rental/lease costs, insurance bills) incurred between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023 only. Please see guidelines for eligibility under this aspect of the scheme.
Only one application per Women's Shed per application process will be assessed. In the case of more than one application, the first application received will be the one assessed.
Women's Sheds can also apply for funding towards other running/operating costs and/or towards capital projects/equipment costs at the following link - https://submit.link/1t5
