Additional €1m Extension to the Community Services Programme Support Fund Announced

Posted on 16 Nov 2021

Mr. Joe O’Brien TD, Minister of State at the Department of Rural and Community Development, has announced additional funding of €1m for the Community Services Programme (CSP) Support Fund. This brings the total amount allocated under the fund in 2020 and 2021 to almost €9m.

The existing supports, which were in place until the end of June 2021 towards additional wage and PRSI supports, are now being extended to 30 November 2021 to those organisations considered most in need, in line with the extension of other Government wage support schemes.

This extension of the CSP Support Fund will be administered over the coming weeks by Pobal, who manage the Programme on behalf of the Department.
