The true scale of the COVID-19 crisis will only be revealed as we move forward into the recovery period. The devastating impact of the pandemic is likely to last for years to come. Failure to understand and respond to these challenges risks leading to deeper inequality throughout the next decade. To combat this, significant investment and intervention is required. Economic disadvantage, lack of job and educational opportunities and social isolation are some of the most crucial challenges facing rural Ireland.
This is why we have created the Rural Recovery Fund. This is a one year €600,000 fund created by Rethink Ireland with support from Google.org and the Department of Rural and Community Development via the Dormant Accounts Fund. The objective of the Fund is to support projects working with communities in rural Ireland that focus on recovery and resilience, as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can apply to the Rural Recovery Fund via the online application form from Thursday 21st October 2021 to Friday 19th November at 5 pm.
