Applications for Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2018 closed 23rd May 2018
The Scheme is an initiative under the Government’s Action Plan for Rural Development, Realising our Rural Potential, and the recently announced Project Ireland2040, and is designed to help rural Ireland achieve its full economic and social potential. It is part of a package of national and local support measures to rejuvenate rural towns and villages throughout Ireland.

Applications from towns could range from €20,000 to a maximum of €100,000, with a major emphasis on measures which have a clear economic impact on rural towns and villages.
