The Community Services Programme (CSP) supports community companies and co-operatives to deliver local social, economic and environmental services that tackle disadvantage by providing a co-funding contribution towards the cost of employing a manager and full-time equivalent (FTE) positions.
Funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development and administered by Pobal, the CSP supports approximately 400 community companies and co-operatives at any given time.
