Just Transition Fund - Strand 1 Projects Announced
Published: 9th September 2020
The DCCAE has issued a press release detailing successful Strand 1 projects under the Just Transition Fund.
The 2020 call for applications the Just Transition Fund closed on 17 July 2020. Provisional offers totalling €1.2 million have been made to 16 successful applicants under the 2020 Fund. The offers relate to Strand 1 applications for less than €100,000 in funding. Applications seeking more than €100,000 from the Fund are still undergoing evaluation and we expect to make provisional offers to those projects in late October.
Final offers are dependent on project applicants providing additional documentation and evidences. Projects may also undergo further review for state aid compliance. Final offers for strand 1 will be announced in the coming weeks.
Successful projects include a feasibility study to scope out the development of a renewable energy technology, examining the potential of brewing artisan beers in the Midlands region using a Bord na Móna site, extending an existing biodiversity park boardwalk, and renovating a local community hall to facilitate remote working and training.
