Community Enhancement Programme (CEP)


The Community Enhancement Programme (CEP) is a new programme for 2018.  It builds on and replaces the Communities Facilities Scheme and the recast RAPID programme, which launched in 2017. The CEP provides funding to communities across Ireland to enhance facilities in disadvantaged areas.

The CEP is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development (the Department) and administered by the Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) in each Local Authority area. 

LCDCs are responsible for allocating funding to projects in their area as they are ideally placed to identify suitable local projects.

Applications for funding can now be made under this Programme to Kilkenny LCDC by 4pm on Friday, 13th July 2018.

The following provides a non-exhaustive list of capital projects that could receive funding under the programme:

  • Development/renovation of community centres
  • Once off maintenance of premises. This does not include regular routine maintenance
  • Community amenities
  • Youth clubs or facilities
  • Sports/recreation facilities
  • Improvements to town parks and common areas and spaces
  • CCTV equipment
  • Public realm improvements
  • Streetscaping
  • Play/recreation spaces
  • Energy efficiency type projects
