Northern Ireland Rural Development Programme (NIRDP) 2014-2020

Interested in applying for funding for rural basic services?

The Fermanagh and Omagh Local Action Group (LAG) Ltd will administer the Rural Basic Services Scheme by delivering funding to:

• support the creation of sustainable multi-use community hubs;
• support infrastructure to allow innovative delivery and the retention of essential rural services across Fermanagh and Omagh.

The LAG will be hosting a number of MANDATORY Funding Workshops across the District Council area for RURAL BASIC SERVICES. Workshops will be held as follows:

• Belcoo Community Centre, Belcoo at 7.00pm on Thursday 25 August 2016
Milestone Centre, Carrickmore at 7.00pm on Wednesday 31 August 2016
Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea at 7.00pm on Thursday 1 September 2016
Bawnacre Leisure Centre, Irvinestown at 7.00pm on Monday 5 September 2016
• Ecclesville Centre, Fintona at 7.00pm on Wednesday 7 September 2016

Tea/Coffee will be available from 7.00pm with events commencing at 7:30pm sharp If you are interested in applying for funding under the RURAL BASIC SERVICES SCHEME then attendance at one of the workshops is the only entry point. This is anticipated to be the LAG’s only call for the Rural Basic Services Scheme and any further calls will be subject to the availability of funds. Failure of an Office bearer, Director or person with delegated authority to sign legal documents on behalf of the organisation to attend a workshop will result in the organisation being ineligible to apply under this call for applications.
