The Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Denis Naughten T.D., has launched the first ‘Call for Applications’ under the Government’s new €500million Climate Action Fund, which will support initiatives from the public and private sector that will help Ireland reach its climate and energy targets.

The €500million Fund is a central element of the Government’s National Development Plan 2018-2027.

The focus of the Climate Fund will be to support a broad range of projects that, in the absence of support from the Climate Action Fund, would not otherwise be developed.  This will include projects that demonstrate innovation and capacity building.

The deadline for applications is October 1st 2018.
