Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation
Regional Enterprise Development Fund
I launched the Regional Enterprise Development Fund Call 3 on the 24th June 2019 and the call closed for applications at 3.00 p.m. on Wednesday 25th September 2019. The overarching aim of this Fund is to drive enterprise development and job creation in each region throughout the country. Enterprise Ireland is administering the Fund on behalf of my Department. The Fund will support major new collaborative and innovative initiatives that can make a significant impact on enterprise development not only across the regions but nationally. This will be achieved by co-financing the development and implementation of collaborative and innovative projects that can sustain and add to employment at a national, regional and county level.
As the Regional Enterprise Development Fund Call 3 has now closed and projects are being assessed, the names of applicants that have applied for funding is commercially sensitive and confidential. I intend to announce successful projects under this Fund by the end of 2019.
