A Mayo deputy has today urged community groups in Mayo impacted by COVID-19 to apply to Mayo County Council for The Community Activities Fund.
Mayo County Council will have a fund of €290,406 to support community groups with their running costs, such as utility or insurance bills, as well as with improvements to their facilities.
Groups will also be able to use the funding to carry out necessary repairs and to purchase equipment such as tables and chairs, tools and signage, laptops and printers, lawnmowers, canopies and training equipment.
Fine Gael Deputy Michael Ring says we depend hugely on community groups in Mayo and he hopes that this funding will help them to continue the important work that they carry out within our society.
“This has been an extremely difficult time for community groups in Mayo that have stepped up to the plate in providing essential services and activities. I am urging Mayo community groups to apply for funding from the Community Activities Fund”, concluded Deputy Ring.
