Tipperary County Council operates a Community Facilities Grants Scheme. Many hundreds of community projects have been assisted to date through the various forms of grant aid available.
No grant scheme is currently open but community groups that were awarded funding under the community grants schemes in previous years are being supported to implement their project.
As the County has developed, so also have the various community needs. The Grants Scheme has also had to evolve to meet these needs. It is now one of the main supports available to promote community development in the county. The emphasis of the Community Grants Scheme is on the development of broadly based community facilities
At all times Tipperary County Council endeavours to encourage the development of as broad a range of local community facilities and services as possible. This ensures that the limited financial resources available are used to the maximum benefit of the community at large. It also promotes sustainability of community facilities through its emphasis on centre based activities.
