Funding of close to €12,000 has been announced for the Northern Sound region to assist integration projects during the pandemic.
The 2020 Communities Integration Fund was open to local groups that support the integration of migrant communities through activities that combat racism and xenophobia and promote intercultural awareness.
Three projects from the Northern Sound region have benefitted from the funding.
Cavan Cross Cultural Community is set to get €3,500 and Cosmopolitan Women's Group Monaghan and Fáilte Isteach Monaghan will receive €4,920 and €3,300 respectively.
Local Minister Heather Humphreys congratulated the organisations that have received the funding and thanked the Minister for Integration and Youth, Roderic O’Gorman, for his commitment to this area.
