Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2020

The Town and Village Renewal Scheme is a key initiative under the Government’s Action Plan for Rural Development, and is part of a range of measures to support the revitalisation of rural Ireland under the Government’s Project Ireland 2040 Rural Regeneration Programme.  

 The Town and Village Renewal Scheme will be funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development and will be administered through Louth County Council. 

The 2020 Town & Village Renewal Scheme will operate on the same basis as has been delivered in recent years, albeit with a particular focus on projects delivering an economic dividend and enabling towns and villages to respond to COVID-19 challenges.  The scheme will also continue to support public-realm type activities and the enhancement of town centre amenities, particularly where this aids the economic and/or social recovery of a town of village. 

The Department is committed to ensuring that towns and villages most in need of support and/or towns and villages which have not previously been funded under the scheme will benefit under the 2020 scheme.  

Selection of projects under the Town & Village Renewal Scheme for 2020 will be by means of a competitive process. Full involvement by community interests and business interests will be an essential feature of successful projects. Successful proposals will include activities which have clear positive economic impacts on the town/village.
