Open Call for Proposals for Woodland Support Funding 2021/2022

In

my role as Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, today I announced a public call for innovative projects which support and highlight the environmental, social and economic benefits of woodlands, forests and timber products. Funding will be allocated by the Department by means of an open competition under a Woodland Support Fund. The Fund is valued at €1 million euro and projects are to be delivered by the end of 2022.


We are looking for projects and proposals which deal with all aspects of woodland and forestry, and highlight all their benefits, from economic, to well-being, to the environment. When we ran a similar call in 2019, we received some brilliant applications from schools, NGOs, farm bodies and Community Groups. I want to harness that enthusiasm again to promote a greater understanding of the multi-functional benefits of our woodlands.
