I launched the 2019 Town and Village Renewal Scheme on 16th April last. Local Authorities were invited to submit up to 12 applications each to my Department for consideration under the scheme. The closing date for receipt of applications was 28th June 2019.

Over 300 applications for funding were received from the Local Authorities.

My officials are currently assessing all of the applications received and the successful applicants will be announced shortly when the assessment process is fully completed.
