2022 CLAR – Limerick City and County Council is now accepting applications for funding under the 2022 CLAR programme.

The closing date for receipt of project application forms for the 2022 Clar Programme is 4pm on Friday 15 April 2022.

Are you living in a CLÁR region of County Limerick and have a project that would benefit the community?

Limerick City and County Council is now accepting applications for funding under the 2022 CLAR (Ceantair Laga Árd-Riachtanais) programme for Measure 1: Developing Community Facilities and Amenities from  Schools/ Community Groups and Local Development Companies within the designated CLÁR areas.

Community Groups can include local sporting organisations where the infrastructure supported is for the benefit of the community generally not just the sporting organisation specifically and is made freely available to all members of the community without any additional restrictions or requirements being imposed.

Any facilities funded must be open to the public without a requirement to be a member of a club, enrolled in a school etc. Facilities on school grounds must be open to the public outside school hours.

The maximum level of funding for any individual project is €50,000 and grant-funding is at a rate of 90% of total project costs.

The closing date for receipt of project application forms for the 2022 Clar Programme is 4pm on Friday 15 April 2022.

A maximum of 15 applications can be shortlisted for onward submission to the Department of Rural and Community Development.

It is important that applications show clear evidence of need and outline the relevance of the project (with regard) to the Limerick Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) and/ or other local or regional plans.

Applications will be assessed for suitability based on the information outlined in the application and the required supporting documentation must be submitted after the closing date.

Limerick City and County Council request all interested parties to review the scheme outline and complete the relevant project application form.

The CLÁR allocation nationally has increased from €5.5m to €7 million in 2022. The programme provides funding for small scale infrastructural projects in identified CLÁR areas that have suffered significant levels of population decline.

Applications for Measures 2 and 3 must be made directly to the Department of Rural and Community Development.
