Funding for Text Alert groups
Cork East Fine Gael TD and Minister of State at the Department of Justice, David Stanton is encouraging Community Text Alert groups to apply for funding which is available from the Department of Justice through the Rebate Scheme.
"My colleague, Minister for Justice, Charlie Flanagan will be making approximately €100,000 available under this year's Rebate Scheme which also ran in 2016," Minister Stanton said.
He said this scheme allows any Community Text Alert Group registered with An Garda Síochána to apply for funding to contribute towards their yearly running costs.
As with last year's scheme, Muintir na Tire will be running the rebate scheme and details of how to apply for the rebate are available at www.muintir.ie," said Minister Stanton.
