New £750k investment in Rural Micro Capital Grant Scheme
Rural Affairs Minister Edwin Poots MLA has announced that a new £750k tranche of the Rural Micro Capital Grant Scheme (RMCGS) will open for applications on Friday 1 October 2021.
The key aim of RMCGS 2021 is to provide small capital grants of between £200 and £1,500 to rural community-led, voluntary organisations for projects tackling issues of local poverty and/or social isolation. The Scheme is funded from DAERA’s Tackling Rural Poverty and Social Isolation.
The total project cost must not exceed £3,000. Applicants must provide a minimum of 15% match funding.
Projects must clearly address an issue of rural poverty and / or social isolation.
The Rural Micro Capital Grant Scheme 2021 has been designed to:
• Help rural community-led, voluntary groups to address local issues of access poverty, financial poverty and social isolation; and
• Improve the lives of rural communities, and in particular the wellbeing of isolated individuals.
Projects must focus on ONE of the following three themes:
• Modernisation (of premises / assets)
• Information Communication Technology (ICT)
• Health & Wellbeing
