The dedicated volunteers in our Tidy Towns Groups throughout County Louth can take great pride in
their efforts. The continued success in local and national competitions is due reward for their
excellent work over many years. Their combined work also acts as a springboard for the local
community and business sector to promote their area as a visitor destination. In recognition of the
achievements of Tidy Towns Groups, Louth County Council is delighted to announce its funding
scheme for groups to carry out small scale capital type improvement works in their town or village
Projects should reflect at least one of the National Tidy Towns categories and indicate how the
proposed works will contribute to potentially increased marks in the particular category of the
competition. The total fund available in 2021 is €80,000.
As part of the Council’s commitment to strengthening participation in community led development
the Tidy Towns Project Scheme 2021 will focus on improving the marks awarded to participating
groups in both the national Tidy Towns competition and local competitions.
Projects must demonstrate adherence to and compliance with the public health advice and
regulations on COVID 19 throughout the proposed project works, compliance with
restrictions must be followed at all times.
Projects will be required to commence in April/May 2021 and be completed by the end of November 2021.
A total of €80,000 is available for projects in 2021 with full drawdown of the grant expected by year
end. Groups may submit a maximum of two projects for consideration. Each project cannot exceed a
request for €9,000 in funding.
Applications must be submitted by Friday 9th April 2021.
