€63,900 Funding for Kerry under Local Diaspora Engagement Fund 2016
KERRY Fine Gael TD, Brendan Griffin, today (27 May, 2016) welcomed grants totalling €63,900 to 19 Kerry recipients as part of an overall national pot of €350,000 to 105 local and community organisations for projects and initiatives under the Local Diaspora Engagement Fund (LDEF) 2016.
The Local Diaspora Engagement Fund is designed to promote diaspora engagement at a county, local and community level – in line with the objectives of Global Irish: Ireland’s Diaspora Policy published by Government in March 2015.
The funding in 2016 will support the development of strong diaspora links within the community through a diverse range of projects including genealogy projects, networking and media initiatives as well as literary and cultural events involving the diaspora.
Deputy Griffin said “Kerry has performed particularly well in this round of funding. This funding is very welcome and will strengthen links between the people of Kerry and our diaspora.”
ENDSA list of the organisations being funded under the Local Diaspora Engagement Fund in 2016 is attached.
