To ask the Minister for Rural and Community Development the reason that voluntary organisations and community groups are only eligible for funding under category 1 of the Community Centres Investment Fund; and if she will make a statement on the matter.


Voluntary organisations and community groups were eligible to apply for funding under Categories 1, 2 or 3 of the 2022 Community Centres Investment Fund.

  • Category 1 – grants up to €25,000
  • Category 2 – grants between €25,001 and €100,000
  • Category 3 – grants between €100,001 and €300,000

Under Categories 2 and 3, in order to ensure appropriate accountability for public funding, organisations were required to have a legal status in Ireland or to be a registered charity.
