Helping Hands – Information sessions for community groups on improving your grant applications

Community groups are invited to attend evening regional events which will provide information on how to submit good applications for grant funding.

The events in each area are run by the Department of Rural & Community Development, Pobal, the Local Authority, the Irish Local Development Network, and the Local Development Company / Companies.

They aim to provide hints and tips on how to make a better application and how to identify local supports that community groups can draw upon.

The events will start at 7pm and will continue until 9pm. People are welcome to attend during that time period.
