Get community group funding applications in before Friday

Community groups in Cavan and Monaghan have until Friday to apply for funding from their County Council.

The closing date for the Communities Facilities Scheme is June 30th, with grants of up to €1,000 available.

The Scheme works to address disadvantage and improve social cohesion in local communities, by providing small grants to groups.

Applications should fall under a number of categories in order to be considered, including youth, older people and community development.
