CLAR Funding Scheme 2021

Clár Funding Scheme 2021

CLÁR (Ceantair Laga Árd-Riachtanais) is a targeted investment programme for rural areas that aims to provide funding for small infrastructural projects in rural areas that have experienced significant levels of de-population. The funding works in conjunction with local/Agency and other Departmental funding programmes and on the basis of locally identified priorities.

CLÁR Programme for 2021

There is a 10% increase in funding, bringing the allocation for 2021 to €5.5 million. The 2021 CLÁR programme will be delivered through four separate Measures as follows:

Measure 1: Support for Schools/Community Safety Measure

Measure 2: Outdoor Community Recreation Facilities

Measure 3: Community Wellbeing Measure (Community Gardens & Allotments/Mobility and Cancer Care Transport)

CLÁR Innovation Measure: Funding for innovative or pilot projects that address specific challenges faced by communities in CLÁR areas.

Any group applying will have plenty to occupy their time between now and then in preparing their application. It will be an online application process only. Closing date for applications to Monaghan County Council is Monday 26th April at 5pm.
