Minister Humphreys announces details of €1.4 million in funding for TidyTowns Groups
Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, has announced the details of €1.4 million in funding to support TidyTowns groups prepare for the 2023 SuperValu TidyTowns competition.
As part of the initiative, grants of between €1,000 and €4,000 will be provided to almost 900 TidyTowns groups right across the country.
Groups who entered the SuperValu TidyTowns competition in 2021 or 2022 will be eligible.
The SuperValu TidyTowns competition has been in existence since 1958. It continues to grow and attract new entrants each year. 882 towns and villages entered the competition this year. At the national awards ceremony in October, Minister Humphreys declared Trim in County Meath as Ireland’s Tidiest Town for 2022.
All eligible groups will be contacted before Christmas to confirm their funding. Applications for funding must be returned to Pobal no later than 28 February 2023. Late applications will not be accepted. All projects and initiatives funded through this support must be completed by 31 July 2023.
