Launch of CLÁR programme to enhance community amenities in rural South Westmeath

Local Fianna Fáil Minister of State, Deputy Robert Troy, has welcomed the confirmation of a €7 million fund to develop community facilities and amenities in rural Westmeath.

The launch of the 2022 CLÁR Programme was announced in recent days.

“CLÁR provides funding for small scale infrastructural projects in rural areas, such as parts of Westmeath, that have experienced significant levels of population decline.

“Community groups are encouraged to consider applying for funding for projects such as the provision of Youth Hubs, Multi-Use Gaming Areas (MUGAs ), Skateboard Parks, Playgrounds, Handball Alleys, Community Cinemas and Gyms and much more.

“Funding for the 2022 CLÁR programme has increased by over 25% this year, in recognition of the importance of the programme to some of our most remote rural areas,” Deputy Troy noted.

Full details of the Programme and application process are available on the Department’s website
