RAPID National Capital Grants Programme 2017

On 2nd November 2017, the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Michael Ring, T.D., announced the launch of the recast RAPID Programme with an allocation of €2m in Capital funding for disadvantaged urban areas.

The grants programme will run initially from October 2017 to December 2017 and is focused on supporting projects that would improve the quality of life for residents in disadvantaged urban areas, providing tangible supports.

The Programme is being administered by the Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) along with the Municipal Districts under the remit of the Local Authorities (LAs) on behalf of the Department.

The Programme will take a national approach whereby each LA/LCDC will be given an allocation and will direct this at the areas most in need as per its assessment.  This approach will remove the need to designate any specific areas as RAPID areas.

The physical environment is an area of expertise for LAs and LCDCs, both of whom are ideally placed to identify needs and wants of local residents in disadvantaged urban areas.

Applications are now being invited for funding under this programme.  Documentation is available below.
