Minister O’Gorman announces 2021 LGBTI+ Community Services Fund
€700,000 will be made available to support community services for LGBTI+ people.
Funding aims to promote inclusion, protect rights and improve quality of life and wellbeing for LGBTI+ people in Ireland.
Grant scheme will be open to applications from existing LGBTI+ non-government organisations and community organisations working with LGBTI+ people.
The Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration, and Youth Roderic O’Gorman T.D., today announced that the application process for funding under the LGBTI+ Community Services fund will open shortly.
€700,000 is to be made available to applicant groups, operating at national, regional and local level, to support community services and promote visibility and inclusion of LGBTI+ people.
The 2021 LGBTI+ Community Services Funding Call is an important initiative under the National LGBTI+ Inclusion Strategy 2019 – 2022.
Announcing the imminent launch of the fund, Minister O’Gorman said,
“It is a priority for the Government to build a safer, fairer, more inclusive Ireland. The National LGBTI+ inclusion strategy has been a major step forward for the LGBTI+ community – and we want to reach people in every corner of the country. This year’s funding will continue to improve access to services for LGBTI+ people, irrespective of their age or where they live.”
The online application process for funding under the Programme will launch in early July, and there will be two streams of funding under which organisations can apply.
