Community Development Groups

Community structures operate as local development vehicles in many Gaeltacht areas. They provide a range of important local services, they co-ordinate or facilitate community development activities and projects and they provide advisory services to the voluntary sector in their operational areas. Community structures initiate and direct community projects and schemes throughout the Gaeltacht.

An tÚdarás provides substantial funding and support services to the community development organisations. Support schemes are available to enable them to progress or implement their development projects.
