Community Grants and Awards

For the past number of years Westmeath County Council has distributed over €450,000 per annum to Community & Voluntary groups in the form of Awards and Grants. This is because the Council recognises and values the work that the Community & Voluntary sector carry out on a day to day basis and believes that this sector is one of the most important in the county as it contributes to the quality of life of all citizens.
