CLÁR funds for groups and schools

Community groups and schools in Kerry have been urged to apply for CLÁR programme funding. Grants are available for works in rural areas such as playgrounds, car parks, public lighting, bus shelters, pedestrian crossings, speed safety signs and other safety measures at schools.

Deputy Brendan Griffin said: "The safety measures coupled with funding for playgrounds and multi-use games areas will assist CLÁR areas to provide safe amenities for their young people thereby increasing the attractiveness of an area from both a social and economic perspective".

Applications for ideas or project proposals should be made to Kerry County Council.

The scheme is funded by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs and delivered. Proposals will be submitted to the Department for consideration and approval.
