Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2021

Expressions of Interest are being sought for the Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2021

The Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2021 provides funding for rural towns and villages for delivery of projects in 2021 and 2022 with a focus on projects that make our towns and villages more attractive and sustainable and respond to the new challenges associated with COVID-19 and support the economic and social recovery of our towns and villages. The 2021 Scheme will place particular emphasis on projects supporting remote working and enhancing town centre living as outlined in “Our Rural Future – Ireland’s Rural Development Policy 2021-2025.” The Town and Village Scheme will support these objectives and will encourage more people to return confidently to town and village centres to work, shop and socialise.

Successful proposals will demonstrate close collaboration between communities and business interests in the design and delivery of proposed projects and must have the support of the Local Authority.
