A total of €20,588.75 was awarded to twelve community groups and sports clubs through South Dublin County Council's Community Grants programme at the October meeting of the Council.

Through the Community Grants programme, community and voluntary groups responding to locally identified needs within their communities can apply for assistance from the Council in areas such as running costs, equipment grants and sports development grants.

Those funded at the October meeting include a wide range of groups, such as Youth Horizons, Rowlagh Women’s Group, Templeogue Mens’ Shed, Eanna Basketball Club, St Francis’ Football Club, Clondalkin Equine Club and more.

Online applications for the Community Grants programme opened in April and were assessed by the Council under the following criteria:

  • Impact on local community and local community involvement.
  • Proven track record of project delivery and non-duplication of activities in the local area
  • Sustainable and value for money projects with clear/accurate costings
  • Existing funds available to the group/alternative funding sources.

To date this year, 94 community development grants have been approved, allocating funding of €207,746 to local community groups with an additional 30 sports developments grants also approved for a total amount of €57,464.
