Daly Encourages West Cork Groups to Answer Funding Call for Greenways– Daly

Cork South West Fine Gael TD and Minister for State at the Department of Health, Jim Daly is today encouraging groups in West Cork to apply for funding under the National and Regional Greenways funding call.
Speaking today, Minister Daly said, “I can confirm that the application process is now open for groups to register their interest for funding. I am encouraging all groups in West Cork to submit funding applications for the €53million fund specifically dedicated for the development of greenways.

We have all seen the tremendous success within communities where greenways were developed in Waterford, Westport and the old rail trail in Moat and West Cork should be no exception in replicating that success.”
The Application Form is based on the criteria set out in the Strategy for Future Development of National and Regional Greenways which is available on the Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport’s website, www.dttas.ie. The closing date for completed application forms is November 30th and can also be accessed through the Departments website.

Concluding Minister Daly said, “While I have been working in tandem with community groups in West Cork over the many years to develop the full potential of their area, I would once again encourage communities in West Cork to continue their persistence with the ambitions and plans they have developed and if any of them need assistance they are welcome to contact my office on 023 88 43868.”
Funding applications will be assessed following the closure of the application process and funding is likely to be awarded in the first half of 2019.
