Rethink Ireland- Urban Uplift Fund


The Urban Uplift Fund is a €662,821 two-year fund created by Rethink Ireland in partnership with JP Morgan Chase and the Department of Rural and Community Development via the Dormant Accounts Fund. The objective of the Fund is to back innovative projects working towards youth employment and/or youth employability in Dublin’s most disadvantaged areas.

The Fund aims to address these barriers and enable young adults (aged 18-30) to reach their full potential by supporting innovative projects in Dublin that aim to secure employment and/or apprenticeships for young adults at risk of permanent exclusion and enhance their full participation in society. 

The Fund will aim to empower up to 120 young adults into jobs, apprenticeships or work experience programmes in the green and/or digital economy. In addition, it will aim to enable up to 75 young adults to complete certified training and up to 80 to progress on to further education.

You can apply to the Urban Uplift Fund via the online portal from Monday, August 22nd until Thursday, 6th October at 5pm.
