Galway County Public Participation Network (PPN) continues to be the main link through which community and voluntary organisations, environmental organisations & social inclusion organisations in Galway interact with Galway County Council and participate in policy-making committees of the Council.
Community groups who register with the PPN receive information relating to community activity such as information on funding sources, training, local events.
The PPN promotes citizen engagement and strengthens linkages between communities and Galway County Council.
One way of doing this is by hosting PPN Plenaries (open meetings/workshops) in each Municipal District.
The upcoming plenaries will be held as funding information workshops and everyone is invited to attend any of the following:
Tuesday Nov 26: Mountbellew Community Centre 7.30pm.
Thursday Nov 28: Lough Rea Hotel & Spa 7.30pm
Tuesday Dec 3: Clarinbridge GAA Club House 7.30pm
Thursday Dec 5: Ard Rí House Hotel, Tuam 7.30pm.
Thursday Dec 12: Peacocks Hotel, Maam Cross 7.30pm

The workshops will provide information on the following funding schemes:
Community Support Schemes 2020
Community Enhancement Programme
Urban / Rural Regeneration Development Fund (URDF & RRDF)
Town & Village Renewal
Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme (ORIS)
Culture Capital Scheme 2019 – 2022
Artist Support Scheme & Tyrone Guthrie Residency
Healthy Ireland Fund (Community Cooking Programme, Go For Life Equipment Programme, Community Mental Health Small Grants Scheme).
