Emigrant Support Programme

The Emigrant Support Programme is a tangible expression of the Government's support of, commitment to, and interest in the global Irish community. It aims to strengthen the international Irish community and its bond with Ireland. Through this programme the Government wants to fund projects that will have a clear and identifiable impact on supporting and building global Irish communities. The Irish Abroad Unit in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade manages and coordinates the programme in partnership with Ireland's Embassies and Consulates abroad.

Since its inception in 2004, the Emigrant Support Programme has assisted over 530 organisations in 36 countries with grants totalling over €182 million. Grants have ranged from small amounts for grass-roots groups, to major allocations awarded to voluntary and community organisations operating on a large scale.

 

The closing time and date for applications is 5.30pm on Wednesday, 19th February 2020. The closing date and time will be strictly applied and under no circumstances can applications be accepted after 5.30pm on 19th February 2020.
