30 Jan Dillon welcomes €4.12 million for Mayo community organisations under Community Services Programme
Mayo TD Alan Dillon has welcomed the announcement that 35 Mayo community organisations will receive additional funding of over €4.12 million under the Community Services Programme (CSP).
Announced by Minister for Community Development, Integration and Charities, Joe O’Brien TD, the CSP is an initiative designed to support community-based businesses, social enterprises and organisations that provide local services and create employment opportunities for disadvantaged people.
Today’s announcement sets out the awarding and issuing of new contracts with revised funding rates under the Programme.
Almost 400 of these organisations nationally will receive additional funding under these new contracts. In Mayo, a total of 35 community groups and community radio stations will receive €4.12 million.
In a further enhancement of the programme, organisations may draw down a full contribution based on 37.5 hours per week per worker, rather than 39 hours, as was previously the case.
The new funding rate allocation model will see the Department’s support for the programme rise by more than €5 million, to almost €49 million.
An increase of €4,000 for both full-time positions and a manager will be provided for organisations considered to have a ‘high funding need’.
For organisations considered to have a ‘medium funding need’ there will be a €2,000 increase per full-time position and manager provided.
There will be no change for the small number of organisations considered to have a low funding need – these are organisations with the strongest earning potential operating in less disadvantaged areas.
Minister of State Joe O’Brien said:
“I am delighted to say that 167 organisations will receive the higher rate of funding, 230 organisations will receive the middle rate of funding, with just 23 organisations continuing with their existing amount of funding.”
Deputy Dillon said he was delighted that a total of 35 Mayo Mayo organisations will benefit from funding ranging from €21,000 to €197,000. This increased funding will help alleviate the financial challenges faced by community organisations with limited earning potential, operating in areas of disadvantage and providing employment.”
He added: “The programme for new applications under the CSP will open shortly. All organisations who have expressed an interest in applying will be contacted by the Department.”
