€58,154, of a €2.5 million national fund, has been allocated to support Longford community and voluntary groups involved in the delivery of Covid-19 community response efforts.

Michael Ring TD, Minister for Rural & Community Development said the urgently needed funding will be available to groups that are participating in the Government’s “Community Call” initiative which is being led by the Local Authorities in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Minister Ring said:“This is a response to support immediate and emergency efforts by community and voluntary groups in assisting people locally.

Seamus Boland, CEO of Irish Rural Link (IRL) said “The announcement is very timely as groups are concerned about increasing costs.”
