South Dublin County Council (SDCC) has opened the Community Climate Action Programme (CCAP) for expressions of interest.

Funding of €1.073m is available for local, not-for-profit community groups and organisations over an initial 18-month period to undertake local climate action projects and the application window is open for 12 weeks, until March 6, 2024. 

Communities can play a critical role in driving such positive change and the programme aims to support and empower communities to deliver projects that shape and build low carbon sustainable communities in a considered and structured way to help contribute to national climate and energy targets. 

“This programme emanates from real citizen feedback, through the national climate conversations, where it was clear that citizens and communities want to do more to fight the climate crisis,” said Mayor of South Dublin County, Councillor Alan Edge.

“This programme affords them an opportunity to do just that, whether communities are new to climate action or more established in this space.

“I look forward to working with my council colleagues and local groups in implementing the programme’.
