The 2019 Town and Village Renewal Scheme was launched in April of this year. There was a strong level of interest in the scheme and I recently announced details of 156 projects that have been approved for funding of approximately €15 million this year.

I intend to launch a further call for proposals under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme in 2020. Details of the application process and the closing dates for receipt of applications will be announced when the scheme is launched.
