Fine Gael TD James Bannon has this week urged community and voluntary youth organisations to apply to a national lottery discretionary fund.
The fund which comes under the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, provides one off grants to youth organisations.
“The scheme is targeting small scale projects with the level of funds awarded typically less than €20,000,” he said. “In all cases applicants should ensure that proposals demonstrate how a meaningful and complete project can be progressed to completion with a grant of this scale.”
The grant is primarily aimed at one-off projects within the local youth sector.
