Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2020 – Accelerated Measures in Response to Covid-19

The new Town and Village Renewal Accelerated Measures Scheme 2020 supports immediate interventions that can be delivered in the short term to respond to the challenges of Covid 19 and support the economic recovery of our towns and villages in County Wexford. Applications should demonstrate measures that assist businesses with social distancing requirements and encourage increased footfall to towns and villages as they re-open for business.

The “Accelerated Measure” will include a simplified application and approval process to enable projects which are part of a response to COVID-19 to be approved and delivered quickly. The Measure will provide funding of up to €25,000 per project, increasing to €40,000 for higher impact and innovative projects. Projects under this category must be completed within a 6 month timeframe and have the potential to deliver immediate results with 10% matching funding.

Wexford County Council invites Applications from town/village groups who may have a suitable project for consideration under the Scheme.

Selection of projects under the scheme will be by means of a competitive process. Applications received will be assessed based on the priorities as contained in the scheme.
