EirGrid has created a dedicated fund for the Mullingar-Kinnegad 110 kV project. The purpose of this community fund is to support community projects led by local organisations within the geographical area impacted by the new infrastructure.
The available fund is €360,000. EirGrid have asked that The Community Foundation for Ireland administer the larger Social Impact Grants stream of the Fund (grants are available for this strand of between €10,000 – €50,000). There is €180,000 in total available for grant making in this stream.
Westmeath County Council will administer the second strand of the grants scheme where applicants are invited to apply for grants of between €1,000 – €10,000. There is €180,000 in total available for grant making in this stream.
