For a number of years Cork County Council has been operating an Amenity Grants Scheme. The general purpose of this Grants Scheme is to aid and encourage works and public amenity schemes for the benefit of residents in the County of Cork. The works that qualify for consideration for amenity grant schemes include the provision or improvement of amenities and the provision of community facilities.
Some community based heritage projects/initiatives would also in principle fall under this scheme. Applications are handled separately for each of the County’s three divisions and for guidelines and application forms, please see the following link – Cork County Council Amenity Grants Scheme. Please be advised that the closing date for applications is now 5pm on the 2nd May 2014.
