Dated: 6 February 2017

Spring is a time for renewal and growth and Clann Credo aims to help community and voluntary groups, charities and amateur sports clubs to grow and to strengthen communities nationwide.

LEADER Grants help Community Groups realise their big project ideas. Bridging Finance and Match Funding can be obstacles for groups trying to avail of LEADER Grants, but Clann Credo Community Loans help ensure that finance should not be issue.

You are invited to the Launch of Clann Credo’s €25 million LEADER Loan Fund on Monday the 6th February.

We are delighted that Minister for Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, Heather Humphreys, TD will be launching Clann Credo’s €25 million LEADER Loan Fund at Virginia Show in Virginia, Co. Cavan.
