Equipment Grant Scheme

In 2021 Laois Culture & Creativity Team awarded 10 Equipment grants to creative and cultural individuals & groups. This is the second year of this grant scheme and the grant is only for the purchase of equipment that contributes to creative and cultural activities within Laois.
