NEIC Initiative Community Grants Scheme 2020


The NEIC Programme Office is now OPEN for applications

Closing date 30th June 2020

The North East Inner City Programme Implementation Board (NEIC PIB) was established by the Government in 2017. The NEIC PIB oversees projects directly linked to objectives and recommendations set out in the NEIC Strategic Plan 2020-2022 / Mulvey Report. Its vision is to make the North East Inner City a safe, attractive and vibrant living and working environment for the community and its families, with opportunities for all to lead full lives.

The NEIC PIB has approved a funding allocation of €100,000 for an NEIC Community Grant Scheme 2020. The objective of this year’s Scheme is to enhance by practical means the facilities and equipment of voluntary/community/not-for-profit groups whose services benefit the communities of the North East Inner City and whose objectives are to

  • tackle poverty and disadvantage,

  • promote participation, integration and social inclusion,

  • empower local residents to take ownership of and have pride in their community.

The 2020 Scheme will focus on minor capital works and/or equipment to upgrade or improve physical assets i.e. the work environment and normal operations of the applicant organisation including office facilities, kitchen, activity and garden/landscaped areas.
