Over 300 projects and initiatives countywide are set to benefit from a Kerry County Council’s Community Support Fund totalling three quarters of a million euro.
Councillors are set to allocate €750,000 in grants to community and voluntary groups, residents’ groups, Tidy Towns groups, Chamber Alliances and other organisations.
The first round of projects – in the Tralee Municipal District – was approved by members at a meeting of councillors yesterday.
Councillors in the Tralee Municipal District approved a total of €240,000, covering almost 90 projects.
The Community Support Fund, now in its second year, has seen an increase of 50% on the number of applications received last year.
Further allocations will be made later this week by councillors in the Killarney, Listowel and South and West Kerry Municipal Districts.
