Town and Village Renewal Scheme

Town and Village Renewal Schemes

The Town and Village Renewal Scheme is an initative under the Government's Action Plan for Rural Development, Realising our Rural Potential, and is part of a package of national and local support measures to rejuvenate rural towns and villages throughout Ireland.

The scheme will focus on projects that enhance and develop towns and villages socially, economically and culturally. All towns and villages in Westmeath apart from Athlone and Mullingar are eligible for consideration. Selection of projects will be by means of a competitive process and we are inviting local groups to submit an Expression of Interest.
