Festival Grant Scheme 2022

Festival Grant Scheme 2022


The Festival and Events Grants Scheme is intended to provide financial assistance to groups and organisations engaged in festivals or events at a local level. The emphasis of the scheme is on providing funding for a diverse range of projects, thus ensuring that the limited financial resources available are used to the maximum benefit of the community at large.

Cavan County Council will not fund applicants who have received a grant for their festival for the previous three years in succession
