Emigrant Support Programme: Addressing the Diverse and Evolving needs of Irish Emigrants

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 16 February 2018

Global Irish is accepting applications for its Emigrant Support Programme which is focused on supporting cultural, community and heritage projects that foster a vibrant sense of Irish community and identity.

In particular the programme supports organisations that deliver frontline advisory services and community care to Irish emigrants, particularly to the more vulnerable and marginalised members of our community abroad.

In recent years the programme has also funded capital projects that ensure the long-term future of Irish communities.

Objectives

  • Celebrate, maintain and strengthen the links between Ireland and the Global Irish;
  • Address the diverse and evolving needs of Irish emigrants, especially the elderly, disadvantaged and vulnerable;
  • Facilitate access to statutory and voluntary services in their country of residence for Irish emigrants;
  • Foster a more vibrant sense of community and of Irish identity;
  • Further the outcomes of the Global Irish Economic Forum;
  • Support business networks to connect Irish people to each other at home and abroad;
  • Research and define the emerging needs of Irish communities abroad;
  • Support development of new ways to communicate and connect with the increasingly diverse global Irish, including non-traditional diasporas;
  • Improve awareness and understanding of the emigrant and diaspora experience.

Funding Categories

  • Capital – Projects involving the construction, refurbishment or purchase of capital assets. This includes projects related to website development/software acquisition.
  • Heritage – Project involving the promotion and maintenance of Irish heritage and identity overseas.
  • Welfare (Elderly) – Projects that are specifically targeted at the older members of the community.
