Small Capital Grant Scheme for Social Enterprises 2019

 
Monaghan Integrated Development is happy to announce that it is administering the newly launched Small Capital Grant Scheme for Social Enterprises 2019 in County Monaghan. This scheme is open to applications from social enterprises.
 
A social enterprise is:
"An enterprise whose objective is to achieve a social, societal or environmental impact, rather than maximising profit for its owners or shareholders. It pursues its objectives by trading on an ongoing basis through the provision of goods and/or services, and by reinvesting surpluses into achieving social objectives. It is governed in a fully accountable and transparent manner and is independent of the public sector. If dissolved, it should transfer its assets to another organisation with a similar mission"

How much can we apply for?
The scheme, which is funded by the Dormant Accounts Fund, will provide grants of between €2,000 and €15,000, at a rate of 100%.
 
What can the grant be used for?
Equipment, repairs or refurbishments which will enable social enterprises to improve their service delivery.
 
When is the closing date?
Soon! Closing date for receipt of completed applications is Mon 11th November at 3pm. If you are interested please click here for the application form. Please contact Julie Clarke by email:  or telephone 042 9795732/042 9749500 for further information.
