Over €30k in COVID funding for Cavan groups

A total of €48.5 million has now been provided in COVID 19 stability funding over the pandemic

Over €30,000 in COVID Stability funding for Cavan community and voluntary groups.

Virgina Show Centre has been granted €20,430, Castlerahan Community Development Company has been granted 6,591 and The Templeport Resource Centre Development Company has been granted €3,897.

“This funding is designed to help organisations and groups hit with short term cash flow issues as a result of the Pandemic,” said Fine Gael Senator Joe O’Reilly. “The funding can be used by both Castlerahan and Templeport Community Development organisations for the provision of essential social services and, in the case of the Virginia Show Centre, the provision of space for other organisations to provide those services.

The funding has been allocated as part of a €2 million nationwide COVID Stability Funding announcement by Minister Heather Humphreys.

A total of €48.5 million has now been provided in COVID 19 stability funding to hundreds of organisations across the country since the onset of the pandemic.

“Community and voluntary organisations are so crucial to the fabric of our society but we saw this all the more during the Pandemic as they reached out to vulnerable people and those isolating at home,” said Sen O'Reilly. “Many of these organisations are now struggling financially and this Government funding should go some way towards helping with that. Funding such as this is an important part of the Government’s rural development strategy, ‘Our Rural Future’, to support our communities to rebuild in the wake of Covid-19”, he concluded.
