Over 80 Donegal groups secure Community Call funding

Donegal County Council received a fund of €81,759 for the Covid-19 Emergency Fund from the Department of Rural & Community Development in April to provide support to Community Groups  who are directly involved in the Community Call.

Following receipt and assessment of applications from eligible groups funding has been awarded to 86 Groups throughout the county who are supporting their community through provision of meals, shopping and prescription collection and delivery services and supports to vulnerable individuals and families and production of PPE equipment. 

Payment of 50% of the grant awarded will issue to all successful applicants this week.

Seamus Neely, Chief Executive of Donegal County Council, stated: “In awarding the grants Donegal County Council acknowledged the tremendous sustained effort being made by local community and voluntary groups across the County during this crisis.”
