Community Facilities Scheme

Community Facilities Scheme


Community groups in disadvantaged urban and rural areas can apply for funding under the Communities Facilities Scheme:


The Department of Housing, Planning Community and Local Government Scheme, which has a national allocation of 2m euro for 2017,  have granted Donegal Local Community Development Committee a fund of €64,500 from which they can be allocate up to €1,000 per project to Community Groups in Donegal.


The Scheme provides small-scale grants for community groups all across Ireland

It operates alongside other schemes and programmes already in place in communities, but groups can only use this funding for capital projects, or part of a capital project

Examples of projects, or parts of projects, which are eligible for this capital funding include:


  • Office equipment
  • Project resources
  • Research facilities
  • Energy efficiency equipment


The Donegal Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) and Municipal District in each Donegal County Council will administer the Scheme on behalf of the Department.




Communities Facilities Scheme funding is only for capital projects, or capital parts of projects


In cases where both current and capital works are carried out together, only the capital part can get funding from this Scheme


Groups must apply for funding to the Local Authority in which they are based, and applicants in Donegal can use the application form provided at the link below


Match-funding from other sources is not required in order to be approved for a grant

See Community Facilities Scheme Guidelines for further details.




The Scheme will offer grants up to a maximum of 1,000 euro per project.
