Grants and Supports

There are a number of options available to help implement your project. Some involve a lot of hands on project management by the community and some can be coordinated by a professional project manager. It's important to discuss the options with your Mentor to decide which grant suits your community project best.

SEAI Community Grant

The SEAI Community Grant supports energy efficiency community projects through capital funding, partnerships, and technical support. The programme supports new approaches to achieving energy efficiency in Irish communities through supporting the upgrade of homes, community buildings and businesses right across Ireland to become more energy efficient and reduce costs.

The initiative aims to deliver energy savings to homeowners, communities, and private sector organisations.

  • All projects should be community oriented with a cross-sectoral approach.
  • You must show that you can sustainably finance the proposed project.

In 2021 the Community Energy programme supported:

  • 57 Community Energy porjects
  • 60 milllion in grant funding
  • 1,100 homes and community builidings upgraded.

The call for new applications for 2023 is open. See our Community grants page for more information.
