Roscommon included in new €68m EU funding scheme

A major funding scheme has been unveiled by Failte Ireland that will cover projects in a number of counties including all of Roscommon.

As Ireland moves towards a low-carbon economy, Fáilte Ireland will deliver the €68m Regenerative Tourism and Placemaking Scheme for Ireland’s Midlands 2023-2026 as part of the EU Just Transition Fund.

Through this scheme, Failte Ireland will invest in the sustainable development of tourism in the Midlands, including Roscommon, with the aim of diversifying the regional economy by creating jobs, supporting habitats and biodiversity and sustaining communities.

The Regenerative Tourism & Placemaking Scheme for Ireland’s Midlands 2023-2026 will be delivered through a series of funding programmes.

One of those, the Investment Grant-Aid Scheme for Private & Community SMEs opens on August 30th for Expressions of Interest. Anyone intending to register their interest in this scheme is asked to first read the Application Guidelines for the scheme here.

The EU Just Transition Fund (EU JTF) Programme is managed by the Eastern and Midland Regional Assembly and full details on the programme and its strategic priorities can be found at EU Just Transition Fund in Ireland.
