The Budget has come a week early for local youth projects in Co. Wexford after the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone, announced €35,620 funding from new Government capital grants.
The Cloisters Youth Facility in Wexford Town received €18,866 and Enniscorthy Community Youth Project received €16,754.
The grants approved support purchases of equipment and small-scale projects, including the upgrade of bathrooms and kitchens in youth services.
Minister Michael D’Arcy told WexfordToday.com “New Government capital grants announced today are going to be of huge benefit to young people here in Wexford, as they will improve the quality of the services on which local young people rely.
“I’d like to thank the Youth Officers in our local ETB for their work in supporting local youth projects and I know that Minister Zappone has thanked them for their assistance to the Department of Children in the design and implementation of this scheme. They act as a contact point in their respective localities and play important support role to the providers of youth services here in County Wexford.”
Minister Katherine Zappone, said: “I am delighted to be in a position to announce these grants. I am confident the grants will assist in improving the quality of the services to the benefit of young people involved.
Eligible local services were invited by the Education and Training Board (ETB) to apply for support.
