The Community Water Development Fund 2023 funding call is now open and you can apply now to get funding for your project.
The Fund is open to all community and voluntary groups to assist in the protection and management of water quality, both locally and in the wider catchment.
The Fund has been in operation since 2018. Since that time, we have awarded €2m in grant aid to 629 grant recipients to fund all types of water related projects.
Examples include: feasibility studies; surveys and plans; biodiversity signage; water conservation measures; invasive species control; riparian management and planting; training workshops; Citizen Science initiatives, etc.
The Fund is administered by LAWPRO on behalf of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage.
There will be €500,000 available under the call.
