Increased funding for 35 community-based organisations in the Midlands
Minister for Community Development, Integration and Charities, Joe O’Brien, has announced that almost 400 community organisations nationwide will receive additional funding under the Community Services Programme. See below for list of organisations from Laois, Offaly, Longford and Westmeath who received funding.
The Community Services Programme is an initiative designed to support community-based businesses, social enterprises and organisations that provide local services and create employment opportunities for disadvantaged people.
Today’s announcement sets out the awarding and issuing of new contracts with revised funding rates under the Programme.
An increase of €4,000 for both full-time positions and a manager will be provided for organisations considered to have a ‘high funding need’.
For organisations considered to have a ‘medium funding need’ there will be a €2,000 increase per full-time position and manager provided.

Minister of State Joe O’Brien said:
“This increased funding will help alleviate the financial challenges faced by community organisations with limited earning potential, operating in areas of disadvantage and providing employment.”
Minister O’Brien added that a new call for applications under the CSP will be announced shortly:
“I am very pleased to be able to open the programme for new applications. We are currently finalising the arrangements and further details will issue shortly. My department will also contact all organisations that have expressed an interest in applying under this new call.”
