Our partner Údarás na Gaeltachta is managing the LEADER Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 for the Donegal Gaeltacht.

Údarás na Gaeltachta explains that the purpose of this targeted call for Expressions of Interest is to "ensure that LEADER funding is targeted where it delivers the most value, is awarded based on a comparative assessment, secures equal opportunities for all potential applicants and ensures funding is available for the duration of the programme". The call is open for:

  • Rural Towns and Broadband under the Economic/Enterprise Development & Job Creation Theme. 
  • Basic Services projects under the Social Inclusion Theme.

It is remarkable that the LEADER programme is administered by Údarás na Gaeltachta except on Gaeltacht islands, where the programme is being administered by Comhar na nOileán.

According to Údarás Na Gaeltachta, our partner is one of four implementing partners of the Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) led Local Action Group (LAG) in County Donegal and has responsibility for the administration and animation of the LEADER Programme in the Donegal Gaeltacht.

In that way, the LEADER programme has three main themes: Economic, Enterprise Development and Job Creation; Social Inclusion and Rural Environment.

These themes/measures are currently open for submission of Expressions of Interest. However, the closing date will be next Friday 17th February 2017, at 4pm. 
Total Budget for the Call: €278,200.
