I launched the 2019 Town and Village Renewal Scheme on 16th April last and Local Authorities were invited to submit up to 12 applications to my Department for consideration under the scheme. The closing date for receipt of applications was 28th June.
Over 300 applications for funding were received from the Local Authorities. My officials are currently assessing all of the applications received and decisions on the successful applications will be made when the assessment process is fully completed.
In general, projects that are allocated funding under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme take 12-18 months to complete from the date of commencement.
