Would your group benefit from financial support from Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council?

The dlr Grants Scheme 2021 is designed to support community based initiatives which promote growth and development.

The Scheme covers the area of Community, Sports, Events, Heritage, Environment & Climate Action and Business Area Promotion in the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown area.

The impact of COVID 19 this year is unparalleled and planned events and initiatives at all levels and in all areas of our community, like society as whole, have all been very significantly affected. The ongoing pandemic will likely have an impact on initiatives, events and festivals into 2021 but we are also aware of the resilience and flexibility of all our community groups and the many innovative ways that they have kept their programmes and events running as much as practicable. In times such as these, it is all the more important that the Council continue to support our communities. 

The 2021 Scheme opened on 21 September and the latest date for receipt of applications is 23 October.
