Community Enhancement Programme 2018

The Community Enhancement Programme is administered by Cork City Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) and funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development.

The Community Enhancement Programme (CEP) will provide capital funding to enhance facilities in disadvantaged communities across Cork as identified in the Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) for Cork City. The CEP programme can fund or partially fund larger scale capital projects to address disadvantage. Some CEP funding is ring-fenced to provide small capital grants between €1,000 and €5,000. This is aimed at assisting small grassroots community projects to get off the ground. 

Chairperson of the Cork City LCDC Cllr. Fergal Dennehy welcomed the 2018 Community Enhancement Programme by saying: I am delighted to welcome the Community Enhancement Programme for Cork City. This programme is aimed at grassroots projects who often find it challenging to access small amounts of funding for capital initiatives. This programme will provide much needed additional funding to communities across Cork City to enhance facilities in disadvantaged areas”.

A list of successful applications will be published in November, 2018.
