KERRY COUNTY COUNCIL
Applications for CLÁR Funding 2023
Ms. Heather Humphreys TD, Minister for Rural and Community Development, has announced details of the CLÁR Programme for 2023.
CLÁR provides funding for small scale infrastructural projects in rural areas that have suffered significant levels of population decline. CLÁR is part of the Government’s Project Ireland 2040 Rural Development Investment Programme.
The main thing to note is that Measure 1: Developing Community Facilities & Amenities is operated by Kerry Co Co and applications are invited with a closing date of Thursday May 4th. This is to allow time for processing before projects are submitted to the Dept.
This is a different date to that on the Dept advertising as Measure 1 has a different process. Measure 1 Applications should be submitted directly to Kerry County Council’s Community, Arts & Culture Department by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Late applications will not be considered. The process is competitive as there is a limit on the number of submissions that Kerry County Council can submit to the Department.
Projects that are successful in receiving funding, must be completed by March 2025.
All applications must be completed in full and all required documentation must be submitted with the application to be considered for assessment. Failure to provide all relevant information and documentation will preclude groups from assessment.

There is a minimum cash contribution required from the Community Groups under each measure. Please see the 2023 CLÁR Scheme Outline for each measure for further details.
