Clare Community Groups Encouraged to Avail of Community Enterprise Initiative

Shannon Chamber welcomes the new  €5m Community Enterprise Initiative Fund, introduced by the Government to stimulate and support enterprise and job creation at a local, community and regional level.

This fund is part of the Government’s €250m Regional Enterprise Development Initiative aimed at accelerating economic recovery in every part of the country.

Shannon Chamber encourages members to consider this funding for any grouping they may be involved with as Clare is very under-represented in terms of EI supported Community Enterprise Centres and it would be great to get a few applications for any of the initiatives contained in this call from the county.

Enterprise Ireland would be happy to meet with any community group who might be interested in making an application.

Shannon Chamber will organise a meeting with the appropriate Senior Regional Development Executive responsible for supporting this initiative for anyone is interested in meeting with Enterprise Ireland

Documents relating to the current open call for applications under the Community Enterprise Initiative are presented below.
