Over 85 Youth Projects Secure Grants To Fund Small Capital Projects

A total of 94 grants have been secured for 86 youth projects in Ireland to fund small capital projects.

The aim of the funding is to provide assistance to youth projects and was split into two categories:

• Type One, which provides for the up-grade or replacement of equipment or the purchase of essential equipment to support the running of the project or organisation.

• Type Two, which will fund health and safety improvements to premises or the upgrade or refurbishment of premises, including the purchase and installation of kitchen and toilet facilities or improvements to enable access to young people with disabilities, including those with physical or sensory disabilities.

Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone, said: "I am delighted to be in a position to announce the allocation of these grants to the 86 successful applicants. As in previous years, I am confident the grants will assist in improving the quality of the services to the benefit of young people involved. In particular, they will improve the physical facilities available to these young people."
