The DAA regarding the re-opening of their Community Fund for applications from yesterday Thursday 10th January and which will remain open for a period of six weeks until Monday February 12, 2019.
The airport’s €10 million Community Fund was launched in 2017 with an annual investment of €400,000 over 25 years. Support is focused on areas such as: environment and sustainability, sports and recreation, social inclusion and community development, health and well-being, and culture and heritage.
The Community Fund supports projects in the neighbouring communities around Dublin Airport. These areas include;
• Forrest Little
• Greater Baskin
• St. Margarets
• The Ward
Organisations such as voluntary groups or clubs, resident associations from local communities, and schools and colleges can apply. The Fund also supports up to 10 students per year from economic disadvantaged backgrounds to enable them to attend Dublin City University (DCU) via its Access Programme.
Groups applying for funding can find an easy how-to-apply guide along with an application form on the airport’s website www.dublinairport.com/community-fund.
