RISE Community Fund Opens Grant Applications in County Sligo
The RISE Community Fund supported by National Broadband Ireland (NBI), the company delivering the National Broadband Plan (NBP), has announced that applications for its grants to small businesses, community groups and social enterprises are now open in County Sligo.
Established by NBI Chairman and technology entrepreneur, David McCourt, RISE is providing monthly grants across the country to give an immediate cash injection into local communities seeking to boost their digital ecosystems.
Following the route of NBI’s deployment of its new high-speed fibre broadband network, Sligo will be amongst some of the first locations to benefit from the RISE Community Fund after it was launched earlier this year. Up to five grants of €1000 will be available in September to successful applicants across Rise’s latest catchment areas of County Sligo.
Small businesses, community groups and social enterprises with plans to use technology to scale their operations and bring tangible benefits to their local communities are encouraged to visit www.riseglobalfoundation.com for entry forms and guidelines. A full list of the townlands that are eligible to apply for grants is available at the RISE website.
