Community Recognition Fund 2024

Date: 04-06-2024

Mayo County Council wish to announce an open call for Expressions of Interest for delivery of projects under the ‘Community Recognition Fund 2024’. 

This Fund aims to support the development of community infrastructure and facilities for the entire community in recognition of the contribution being made by communities in welcoming and hosting significant numbers of arrivals from Ukraine and other countries. 

The funding is specifically targeted at projects that are located in communities, towns and villages that are hosting the Beneficiaries of Temporary Protection and/or International Protection Applicants (‘new arrivals’) including towns identified for the rapid build homes programme. The Fund aims to support the development of facilities that will be used in the future by all members of the community.

Projects situated in areas that do not have high levels of new arrivals will not be deemed eligible.

This Scheme will fund Capital Projects only. Min. Grant €50,000. Max. Grant €200,000.

For projects in excess of €200,000, please contact us by emailing

For Scheme Guidelines, online application portal, and details of an upcoming online information session hosted by Mayo PPN, please visit:

Closing Date for submission of Expressions of Interest is 3pm on Thursday 11th July.  

Please Note:  Eligible Expressions of Interest will be evaluated on a competitive basis based on the information supplied in the EOI and the numbers of ‘new arrivals’ in the community.

If you have any queries, please contact us by Email or Phone 094-9064660
