Funding of over €9,000 has been granted to the North Mayo Youth Project in Ballina.
The news of the funding has been welcomed by local Fine Gael Senator Michelle Mulherin, who says the allocation will come from the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.
The new Government capital grants announced are going to be of huge benefit to young people here in Mayo, as they will improve the quality of the services on which local young people rely according to Senator Mulherin.
The grants approved support purchases of equipment and small scale projects, including the upgrade of bathrooms and kitchens in youth services.
Eligible local services were invited by the Mayo, Sligo, and Leitrim Education and Training Board to apply for support.
