The 2021 CLÁR programme has been launched.
CLÁR provides funding for small scale infrastructural projects in rural areas that have suffered significant levels of population decline.
Mayo Fianna Fail deputy Dara Calleary says funding for the CLÁR programme has been increased by 10% increase this year, in recognition of the importance of the programme to rural areas. This brings the allocation for the programme to €5.5 million for 2021.
Deputy Calleary has been giving more details to Midwest News..
