Intro Text 

dlr Grants Scheme closes this Friday, 19th October at 12 midnight.  All incomplete applications need to be completed by the deadline to be eligible for evaluation.  Anyone requiring assistance with their application should contact grants@dlrcoco.ie by Wednesday 17th at the latest.

The dlr Grants Scheme has been running very successfully for a number of years. Every year it provides funding to individuals, groups and organisations engaged in projects, events or initiatives at local neighbourhood or county level within the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council area. It has particular emphasis on supporting local initiatives that promote growth in sports, arts, heritage, environment, festivals, events and community.



Every year the dlr Grants Scheme funds a wide range of initiatives in this diverse range of areas. In order to ensure good governance and transparency there are of course a number of general guidelines that refer to applying for the grants and some additional guidelines around specific grant categories. This helps ensure that the Council is supporting the very best in our communities development.


The Scheme opened on 14 September and if you think you or your organisation has an initiative that could promote growth in our county and its communities please have a think about applying. This year the system has gone online in order to aid ease of use and make applying for a grant more efficient. You make an application online through our website at dlrcoco.ie/grants.
