€1 billion Peace Funding Could Be Transformative For Communities’ – Mackle

Sinn Féin Council group leader Liam Mackle has urged community groups from the ABC council area to apply for ‘transformative’ EU Peace Plus funding that is set to open for applications in the summer.

Cllr Mackle said:

“It’s welcome news that over €1 billion worth of transformative EU Peace Plus Funding is set to open for applications from local community groups this summer.

“This funding will create jobs, help regenerate communities and fund major infrastructure projects and be very welcome in an era of continued Westminster austerity which has starved communities of so many needed projects.

“I would urge groups throughout the ABC council area who plan to apply for this funding to take part in advice workshops facilitated by the Special EU Programmes Body next month.”
