Fianna Fáil TD for Dublin Bay North, Seán Haughey, has today welcomed over €51,000 in Covid Stability funding for community and voluntary groups across Dublin Bay North.
This funding is part of a wider package of almost €4.5 million for community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises, which have suffered financially as a result of the pandemic.
Deputy Haughey commented: “The Government is fully aware of the tremendous role being played by community and voluntary groups in supporting communities and delivering important services, particularly during these challenging times.
“Covid-19 has brought challenges to these organisations, particularly with their cash flow and the practicalities of keeping their doors open.
“This funding is a vital lifeline to stabilise the position of many of these social enterprises and help those who give so selflessly of their time to continue with their good work.
“I am delighted to hear that three community groups across the constituency will benefit from this announcement.
“Artane Beaumont Family Recreation Centre has been awarded €28,000, Grange Woodbine Residents Association will receive €13,500 while Marino & District Community Centre will benefit to the tune of €10,000.
“It is my hope that funding will allow these organisations to continue this valuable support as we all work towards a social and economic recovery.”
